Peter Pan’s Shadow

As I watched my daughter toddle down the sidewalk, I thought, “her shadow will not always be this small.”

Then, it hit me. Neverland.

Peter Pan, the boy who did not want to grow up. Peter Pan’s youthfulness would not be, without proof of his shadow. He ran away to Neverland, so he would never have to see the reflection of the man he had become.

I wonder when my own reflection changed. Maybe it never has. Maybe our shadows stay forever young, like Peter Pan. All we have to do is unlock the drawer; and step into the light.
