      • Certainly the ‘overgrown child’ tag has a negative connotation implying an immaturity to be frowned upon. Not sure why that is or should be the case. Ursula Le Guin’s stated belief seems to challenge the negative connotation. It’s more acceptable I suppose to be thought of as a big kid, but the big kid tag doesn’t incorporate the idea of growth that is central, I think, to the Le Guin quote.

  1. True, being a ‘big kid’ misses the idea of ‘growth.’ I think ‘overgrown’ is negative for me because I often link it to the most obvious place – the garden!
