“We are always the same age inside.”
– Gertrude Stein

Photographing children enjoying the beach is one of our favourite pastimes. There’s nothing as delightful as watching the Mexican kids on the beach as they simply have fun. It always makes me wonder where we as adults have lost the magic of our milk-and-cookie days, when the world was there for us to explore and discover.

We are born with a complete understanding of fun – can you remember when the whole day was basically play time as you were fully immersed in the “now?” Adults tend to have their magic inhibited by “reality,” and fun seems to fade over time with conditioning and responsibilities. Remember when you were a kid how easy it was to just let things go – to live without worry? Where did all the fun go??

You’re never too old to live like a child again. I challenge you to get out of your comfort zone, get dirty, run wild, explore, love and live because life is too short not to enjoy. Life is a game, so get out there and have some good, clean fun.
