Instead of a monument to the unknown soldier, our times demand a monument to the unknown parent. It would honor every parent who has spent the last year bending over backwards to make sure the kids have a normal life and don’t notice anything is wrong. The brave people who saved their kids’ psyches by sacrificing their mental and physical health.

The Capacity to Enjoy Nature
Look how beautiful our campus is, really:
One of the benefits of psychoanalysis is that I developed a capacity to enjoy nature. From a hard-core nature-hater I turned into a total tree-hugger.
Ready for the Snow
I’m walking among the blooming, fragrant flowers on campus, preparing for tomorrow’s announced snowstorm.
Has anything of interest happened in the world while I’ve been out celebrating?
