I love the parades at Disneyland. They light up the streets and the faces of thousands of children. Even the adults are brightened by the action! It’s like all the worries of adulthood fall away, and they are children again– able to enjoy dancing lights and friends they’ve only met across a screen.
A few years ago, Prince Charming blew a kiss at me. Despite the fact I’ve written articles on the template-nature of his character and the sexism (in both directions) that Prince Charming embodies– I basically swooned.
Big worldly ideas are so small when you’re standing in front of a 30 foot tall parade boat.
Widespread worldly concerns are so dull compared to the bright lights decorating a long stretch of road.
I think it’s healthy for people to take take a few minutes out of every day to forget all our adulthood worries, and let ourselves be illuminated by the simplicity of child-like wonders.
