Glassy Distance

When we are born, everything is new. From what world did we arrive that makes everything and everyone here seem so new? I don't know. Children have different views and different approaches to the outside world, sometimes they get scared, happy, sad, shy, indifferent, and maybe astonished about the events and phenomenons of the new world. They watch these through a thin glass which separates their pure innocent world from the complex incomprehensible one which belongs to the adults, subconsciously recording every single detail. Eventually these children become a reflection of all they have seen and recorded through the glass. Sometimes an unpleasant moment can turn someone into an antisocial misanthrope, or on the other hand, a pleasant experience can make them embrace their society as a cooperative member.
