I was a nursery school teacher, and I worked with youth groups. I loved that job. It was exhausting, but you got a lot back - all their purity and insight and innocence is so on the surface, and they're so unrepressed; they'd really scream at you and then give you a massive kiss.
Bat for Lashes
The core of the person is what he or she loves, and that is bound up with what they worship - that insight recalibrates the radar for cultural analysis.
