I've always been fascinated with Peter Pan (either the Disney version or the Mary Martin one, not the disturbing Barrie version who tries to kill Wendy) and his dedication to staying young forever. I thought it was a great idea and wished I could find Never-Never Land myself; pirates, ticking crocodiles and all. With my 30th birthday looming, in just a couple of days, I was thinking about Peter Pan today and wishing he would come visit so that I could stop time for short while. Though, sadly. I guess I would be too old for Never-Never Land now. Back when I watched Peter Pan singing "I'll never grow up" I couldn't imagine myself as a grown up, and I still sometimes have trouble adjusting to the fact that I am one now. But I guess Chili Davis had the right idea when he said " Growing old is mandatory- Growing up is optional." But still, I wouldn't turn down a trip to Never-Never Land with Peter, even now.
"And if it means I must prepare to shoulder burdens with a weary air, I'll never grown up, never grow up, never grow up- not me!
