You must not lose the freshness
and innocence of the child; the true
sensualist; hearing, smelling, feeling,
seeing, and testing for yourself as
if for the very first time,
and discovering anew the joy in the
way that words are nugget-ted
out of tired, shop-worn contexts,
and making them live again like
a glad but sharp pain in the
restorative revival of the senses.
