Innocence is Freedom. #WQWWC

“Writing novels preserves you in a state of innocence – a lot passes you by – simply because your attention is otherwise diverted.”-Anita Brookner CBE (16 July 1928 – 10 March 2016[1]) was a British award-winning novelist and art historian. She was Slade Professor of Fine Art at the University of Cambridge from 1967 to 1968 and was the first woman to hold this visiting professorship. She was awarded the 1984 Man Booker Prize for her novel Hotel du Lac.

When looking for a quote to use in this week’s Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge for Innocence, I ran across only a very few that I really liked. Then I came upon the one above. There is so much truth in that sentence.
I like the innocence I have. There is so much that I’m not aware of, so much I am glad I don’t know. I fill my mind and time with things I want to know. It’s like feeding my brain good food and no junk. I’m not influenced by the media, including the social kind, nor by trends. I keep my basic core in tact and am able to look around and see how the world really is in comparison to how we are led to believe it is.
Innocence means a lot of things. Ultimately I believe innocence is the sticking to your core values and beliefs without prejudice while respecting the world around you. (I think that made sense?)
