Dashboard Duck

This fragile little duck rides on my dashboard. It is my job to make sure he has a smooth ride. He is made of plastic and would be otherwise inanimate, but he has a way of seeing me and telling me how I am doing while driving down the road. In reality he is merely an extension of myself. An outward indicator of what is inside. Am I feeling rushed? Haphazard? Careless? This duck will be honest and let me know. He grounds me. He alerts me of what is unfulfilled. Gives me a chance to reflect and see what I need.

I like this idea a lot. Sometimes we need a reminder to just chill out on the road.

Why do I sometimes ask my children to stop playing with their food when I know full well how much fun it can be to play with one's food?

More than slightly deflated. Barely able to hold itself up. I have been there before. But not today.

Human Exhibit

When I look out the window this morning watching the cardinals and finches get some breakfast at the snack bar outside my house, I am thinking of the animals at the zoo. At the zoo, I can get a snack and then walk up to some animals watching them do their silly animal things all the while protected from fearful interaction by a window or some other barrier. These birds, too, can get a snack and walk up to see the silly human doing silly human things all the while being protected from fearful interaction by a window. Of course, just as if a tiger escaped its cage I would likely flee out of my fear of the unknown, the birds will fly away to a distance from me that makes them feel safe whenever I go outside. I am their exhibit, and happy to be.

Introduction

I stay at home with my six year old son, Jupiter, and my three year old son, Tsunami. I am a software guy and otherwise a technology geek. If it talks in zeros and ones, I want to be its friend. I enjoy spending spare time with my life partner, Chris. I believe in the good of humans and see no need for (or evidence of) divine intervention. Overall, I try to be the good sort of human toward others that I would like to see other humans be.

There I was sitting in a dinner wondering what has become of my life. "Why am I contemplating running naked through the street? Would anyone notice the rash?" It mattered not at that point. I had made my commitments and I had to follow through. I gathered my things and walked toward the front door. I briefly considered looking back. In hindsight I am glad I did not. There was no need. Once I walked out that door, everything changed...

This is a park with a lot to offer. It hosted the 1904 World's Fair. It has a free zoo. Did I mention it hosted the World's Fair? There are two free museums in it. A planetarium which is just across the highway from the St. Louis Science Center also takes residence within the park. It was also the site of the World's Fair in 1904. There are a variety of annual events which take place here all year long. Notably the Great Balloon Race and the Blank Family Reunion happen every year. One year, about 110 years ago, there was even a World's Fair! If you can't find something to do a Forest Park, you might consider getting your head checked.
