In a world where innocence is lost so quickly, I pondered if it truly exists at all.  Where does one go to find it....this freedom of a pure, existence amidst an age-old classroom called life who teaches that innocence is best ignored.

Nature's untainted innocence is responsible for all these things.

Nature hears no voice but it's own; yet, speaks to all who will listen.  A voice as constant as a rising sun or branches swaying in the wind.....for these are the soft-spoken words of innocence.
