An Aside

Introducing: #DearKiddos

These posts are written first for nieces, nephews, youth at church, and the children of dear friends.

The posts may not be helpful to you today, but maybe they will be someday. Perhaps many of these will be their most meaningful when you aren’t even a “kiddo” anymore. But, I hope you will retain some youthful spirit throughout your life, so don’t let “kiddo” scare you away from reading.

As you read these posts, you may disagree with me, and I hope you sometimes will! What’s important is that you think about the topic deeply, don’t fall for easy answers, and consider what it means to live a good life.

If you want to respond to any of these, I’d encourage you to write your own response and link back to what you are responding to. If you don’t know how to do that, or don’t want to, you can also email me, and I will respond. My email address is my first name and last initial at “hey.com”

🚲 to Chris’s 🍨🌮 for lunch. Best idea.

Hi Apple Watch 👋

Very nice to meet you. Really excited about all the cool exercise stuff we’re doing. One request though:

Could you maybe not give me stand up reminders when we are in sleep mode? kthxbye

I’m hearing more and more “Indunapliss”

Could we not?

Even better we could come up with a new city name?

🎶 Did You Know?

It’s not officially Autumn until you’ve listened to Opeth’s Blackwater Park straight through.

I think part of the joy of 🚲 is that it forces you to be mindful and present in the moment.

(Sadly this is because you are constantly aware of your surroundings to help ensure you don’t get murdert.)
