One grows. How quick and awkward is the body. Discover your strength, discover your speed. Race and struggle, run, run, and climb. Why walk when one can race? Silly adults, always lagging behind, like some slow animals. Wind in the hair, wind in the face, cold water takes the breath away, but how delicious it is to dive into cold water! All you do is daring and new. Boundaries of the known are stretched, stretched till they will not stretch any more, like a rubber wall, and bump you gently back into your place. No matter, other fields are open.
