There are days when all I do is sit in front of a computer screen – all day long. That is not my favorite way to spend the day, but around lunchtime the monotony is broken up a bit. An email arrives in my inbox, and in it are the photos from F’s morning at school. Every day is different – there are long walks around the neighborhood, playgrounds to conquer, recipes to be made, objects to sort, great paintings to paint. Occasionally she looks at the camera and I have this moment where I’m connected to her as she plays and learns and grows. And I realize just how lucky I am that we have the schools and the friends and the teachers and this city to grow up in.
