In this short essay the author expresses his inner experience and emotional perception of childhood. The happiness he had experienced in his childhood has not passed without a trace. Different events of childhood did not interfere with its length and meaningfulness. The author felt himself a discoverer of the world, not of the one that is the place of suffering, but the one that is the place of beauty. After all the things that he had gone through (wars, occupations, straying, and immigration), a return home, to the place where he was born, is the meeting between himself-as-a-child and himself-as-an-old-person. That is the happiness.
