Calvin and Hobbes – Good to be a kid

September 17, 2008

As the world crumbles around us, at least everything is alright with Calvin and his buddy. The perspective of a child always puts me at ease when life starts getting out of control. It’s not because children are oblivious to their surroundings (which they definitely are not), it’s their ability to prioritize what’s important and really enjoy the present. I think as you become older, you become too obsessed with the past and the future, like “oh crap, what’s the plan for tomorrow, next week, next month?” and “oh crap, I shouldn’t have done that, why did I do that.” Children wouldn’t think past the PB&J sandwich in their hands, and would quickly shrug off spilled milk. I guess my main point is: it’s good to be a child right now.

Here’s a good Calvin and Hobbes strip I found:
