Splash du Jour: Friday













In children's literature the grown-up wants a comforting image of childhood, or just a familiar name or story; the child wants a boat, a way out, an example of the life beyond. The parent wants to get back, the child wants to get out.
-- Adam Gopnik --

Have a great Friday!
