MIND: Survival

The people I find irresistible are those in whom the child was not killed.
The qualities of openness, trust, inquisitiveness, tenderness, eagerness, enthusiasm, others undefinable, come from the child in us and are the source of charm.
The laughter and the smile that do not calculate, the spontaneity that is not arrested.
I cannot remember ‘adult’ charm or whether it even exists.
