« Is Writing in a Blog “Real” Writing? | Main | Born Again »

January 10, 2005


I think the your blog is very well written and funny. I also think you should arm Leah instead of crying. We were raised as such wimps. I have come to believe that a swift right to the jaw is at times the correct response. Get out of the bushes and take Leah to a self-defense class. I was such a gentle child--as Leah is--and I wish I learned earlier how to fend for myself.
As for your Dad's fears. As I grow older I understand them in a deeper way. Actually his view might be more realistic then ours. But to live life you have to suspend reality and delude yourself. How else can we function if you don't pretend that you’re somewhat immortal? If I think about what really goes on in the world too long I become paralyzed and still worse a French nihilist.
