Every year we ask the kids the same set of questions on their birthdays, and film their responses. I've had daydreams about some of Abbott's expressed hopes and dreams, both short term - 'I want to cook more, independently, controlling the heat source myself. And use a knife! ' - and long-term - 'I want to be a writer.' I've tried to imagine what my future life might look like, say, in a decade, and what I want it to look like. I don't have any big answers for how to create a convergence between my hopes and reality but thinking about it seems a good first step. In the meantime, the here and now is very good.
Wishing you a relaxing weekend.
