Out there in the world

Do you have your ziploc?


Okay, nice one getting yourself up and out the door with plenty of time to spare.

yeah, I had a good sleep

It’s exam day, and Concert Band practice. All the things. Today’s test slate is Economics and English.

He primed the pump last night by chatting with his buds online, and I happened to overhear some of the conversation

Governments should apply Universal Health Care but in the long run they don’t want people to need health care. The goal is to put health care out of business

He spotted me outside the door with a raised eyebrow and reassured me that this was indeed a study session, not just a chance to shoot the breeze

Don’t worry Papa, we’re talking economics

And I realize, yet again, that test scores aren’t the thing. Seeing him have actual conversations, about the real world, is where it’s at. Generating new ideas, forcing curiosity.

I’m grateful he’s found a crew to bounce ideas with

We’re hearing stories from a few colleagues of motorbike accidents, close calls.

The streets are busy these days.

Drive safely.

He gives me a thumbs up, and as I watch him ease the e-bike off the patio and into the street, close the gate and silently cruise away

I’m confident he’ll find his way
