When I was a younger lad, my brother and I had access to a massive acreage behind our parentโ€™s house. This is where we were raised. This is where we discovered generosity, sharing, collaboration and kinship.ย  Come the weekend, my folks would unconditionally toss us out, โ€œItโ€™s beautiful outside. Go. Be home in time for supper.โ€ And then my brother and I were off. Out there, wandering fields and free to levy our judicious imaginations. We built rope swings from massive Blue Gum eucalyptus which swung from 40โ€™ bluffs, erected Swiss Family Robinson style tree houses with hallways and satellite platforms scattered among the crowns of Coastal Oaks. And youโ€™re right in thinking it was a dangerous time. We created far more danger for ourselves than our folks could protect us from. My brother and I had our share of bruises and battered falls. There were baffling instances when a neighbors would let go from the swings and snap limbs, we witnessed these events and learned lessons.ย  But those glorious days were ours, my brotherโ€™s and mine. Itโ€™s a tragedy imagining being raised without the freedom of that land hugging our Tom Sawyer curiosities, liberating us after a dose of chores. It explains so much of who we are as adults and for the causes we care about today. As you age, your interests shift from building tree forts and running in tall grass for miles toward finding work, buying things and forging your way into khaki-painted suburbs, packing those old days into a tidy box of memories and saying to yourself, โ€œIโ€™ve grown up. I do adult things now.โ€
