Tree Crossed Photographer

I seemed to have a rediculous number of pictures of Gabe taking pictures. He's so cute!!

I also had a relatively thought provoking if depressing conversation with my mom about the world, violence, child rearing, values and possible solutions. Sigh.

Somewhere between the rash of school shootings, a defiant nuclear test, ongoing bloodshed in the middle east and 8 year olds dressed for the bar in Fredericton - there has to be a better way to have a civilization, a better way to pass on coping skills and civil values, a better way to raise our children and protect ourselves and others from the ravages of status revengeicus. I just can't figure it out off the top of my head. The best I can offer, whenever I determine I have the experience and ability, is to become a politician. Not exactly what I had in mind for a career, being naturally averse to confrontation and not keen to ask for verbal abuse, but willing to endure as a civic necessity. I can produce maybe 2-3 children and love them and hopefully raise them to be caring and kind people. I suppose I can set a good example of kindness, thoughtfulness and responsibility. But at this point in my life, I don't have a huge sphere of influence.

Anywho, back to cleaning my bedroom and exercising.
