Meadows of Childhood and Birth of a Materialistic/Pagan Man

It's trying to say too much. Usually a birth comes before childhood.
In childhood a person mostly thinks idealistically but as he grows old this world changes him into a materialistic person. Don't you think it;s kind of second birth for him?

Usually you think of rebirth as a renewal, making the person better or more pure. You're talking about a transformation.

Meadows of childhood is nice - it seems happy and carefree. Can you think of another metaphor that represents materialism? Than you can have From the Meadows of Childhood to the [whatever] of Adulthood.

Or, since most academic titles seem to have colons -- From the Meadow to the [Whatever]: How the idealism of childhood transforms to the materialism of adulthood.

No, but maybe you can come up with something in imitation of a similar title that's already been used: The Birth of Tragedy out of the Spirit of Music.

Thanks, GG and CJ. Can you suggest any title keeping in view my original title?

Barbara, What would you like to use in place of whatever in your suggested titles?

From the Meadows of Childhood to the [whatever] of Adulthood.
From the Meadow to the [Whatever]: How the idealism of childhood transforms to the materialism of adulthood.

I'm not feeling very creative today. If "meadows" makes you think of being carefee, what would make you think of commercialism. What about "From the Meadow to the Mall"? That has nice alliteration.
