This is a note specifically relating to my son, Grayson. Basically, after a swim lesson this morning (July 22, 2013), we had such a fun day that I was wondering what (if any) of its focus might linger into the future.
With that in mind, I thought I’d send this forward to a time that parallels when I recollect developing preferences that would follow me around for the rest of my life. Namely, about age 10.
So, to myself or my son eight years into the future, in July of the year 2021 (Gray will be approaching his 10th birthday), I pose the following question:
Do you still like dragons and rockets? =)
Basically, that’s been the dual request from Grayson for a few days straight. When forced to think about them juxtaposed, they have more in common than I ever realized… There’s a thrill with both. And flight. And a roaring noise. And fire.
It’s actually pretty cool. Grayson also believes that thunder is the sound of dragons in the sky. -Again, awfully cool – and it makes perfect conceptual sense. (When I’d try to talk and explain to him that he should be looking for lightning, he’d put a finger to his lips and say, “Shhhhh.” …and then, “…Dragons…”)
So, how about it, Gray? Rockets and Dragons – What do you think? Do you still like them? If not, what do you like today?
…from the past, all the way back to the year 2013. =)
