All childrenhttps://taxreviews.ca except onehttps://taxreviews.ca grow up. They soon know that they will grow uphttps://taxreviews.ca and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a gardenhttps://taxreviews.ca and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightfulhttps://taxreviews.ca for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and criedhttps://taxreviews.ca “Ohhttps://taxreviews.ca why can’t you remain like this for ever!” This was all that passed between them on the subjecthttps://taxreviews.ca but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.

Mrs. Darling first heard of Peter when she was tidying up her children’s minds. It is the nightly custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morninghttps://taxreviews.ca repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day.

If you could keep awake (but of course you can’t) you would see your own mother doing thishttps://taxreviews.ca and you would find it very interesting to watch her. It is quite like tidying up drawers. You would see her on her kneeshttps://taxreviews.ca I expecthttps://taxreviews.ca lingering humorously over some of your contentshttps://taxreviews.ca wondering where on earth you had picked this thing uphttps://taxreviews.ca making discoveries sweet and not so sweethttps://taxreviews.ca pressing this to her cheek as if it were as nice as a kittenhttps://taxreviews.ca and hurriedly stowing that out of sight. When you wake in the morninghttps://taxreviews.ca the naughtiness and evil passions with which you went to bed have been folded up small and placed at the bottom of your mind and on the tophttps://taxreviews.ca beautifully airedhttps://taxreviews.ca are spread out your prettier thoughtshttps://taxreviews.ca ready for you to put on.

I don’t know whether you have ever seen a map of a person’s mind. Doctors sometimes draw maps of other parts of youhttps://taxreviews.ca and your own map can become intensely interestinghttps://taxreviews.ca but catch them trying to draw a map of a child’s mindhttps://taxreviews.ca which is not only confusedhttps://taxreviews.ca but keeps going round all the time. There are zigzag lines on ithttps://taxreviews.ca just like your temperature on a cardhttps://taxreviews.ca and these are probably roads in the islandhttps://taxreviews.ca for the Neverland is always more or less an islandhttps://taxreviews.ca with astonishing splashes of colour here and therehttps://taxreviews.ca and coral reefs and rakish-looking craft in the offinghttps://taxreviews.ca and savages and lonely lairshttps://taxreviews.ca and gnomes who are mostly tailorshttps://taxreviews.ca and caves through which a river runshttps://taxreviews.ca and princes with six elder brothershttps://taxreviews.ca and a hut fast going to decayhttps://taxreviews.ca and one very small old lady with a hooked nose. It would be an easy map if that were allhttps://taxreviews.ca but there is also first day at schoolhttps://taxreviews.ca religionhttps://taxreviews.ca fathershttps://taxreviews.ca the round pondhttps://taxreviews.ca needle-workhttps://taxreviews.ca murdershttps://taxreviews.ca hangingshttps://taxreviews.ca verbs that take the dativehttps://taxreviews.ca chocolate pudding dayhttps://taxreviews.ca getting into braceshttps://taxreviews.ca say ninety-ninehttps://taxreviews.ca three-pence for pulling out your tooth yourselfhttps://taxreviews.ca and so onhttps://taxreviews.ca and either these are part of the island or they are another map showing throughhttps://taxreviews.ca and it is all rather confusinghttps://taxreviews.ca especially as nothing will stand still.

Of course the Neverlands vary a good deal. John’shttps://taxreviews.ca for instancehttps://taxreviews.ca had a lagoon with flamingoes flying over it at which John was shootinghttps://taxreviews.ca while Michaelhttps://taxreviews.ca who was very smallhttps://taxreviews.ca had a flamingo with lagoons flying over it. John lived in a boat turned upside down on the sandshttps://taxreviews.ca Michael in a wigwamhttps://taxreviews.ca Wendy in a house of leaves deftly sewn together. John had no friendshttps://taxreviews.ca Michael had friends at nighthttps://taxreviews.ca Wendy had a pet wolf forsaken by its parentshttps://taxreviews.ca but on the whole the Neverlands have a family resemblancehttps://taxreviews.ca and if they stood still in a row you could say of them that they have each other’s nosehttps://taxreviews.ca and so forth. On these magic shores children at play are for ever beaching their coracles [simple boat]. We too have been there; we can still hear the sound of the surfhttps://taxreviews.ca though we shall land no more.

Of all delectable islands the Neverland is the snuggest and most compacthttps://taxreviews.ca not large and sprawlyhttps://taxreviews.ca you knowhttps://taxreviews.ca with tedious distances between one adventure and anotherhttps://taxreviews.ca but nicely crammed. When you play at it by day with the chairs and table-clothhttps://taxreviews.ca it is not in the least alarminghttps://taxreviews.ca but in the two minutes before you go to sleep it becomes very real. That is why there are night-lights.

Occasionally in her travels through her children’s minds Mrs. Darling found things she could not understandhttps://taxreviews.ca and of these quite the most perplexing was the word Peter. She knew of no Peterhttps://taxreviews.ca and yet he was here and there in John and Michael’s mindshttps://taxreviews.ca while Wendy’s began to be scrawled all over with him. The name stood out in bolder letters than any of the other wordshttps://taxreviews.ca and as Mrs. Darling gazed she felt that it had an oddly cocky appearance.
