Out in the world this week was a real doozy. We had elections for the senate seats in Georgia, insurgents took the Capitol building, Congress decided to stop fighting Biden as our next president and now there is talk of impeaching Trump in the final days before the end of his term. Oh yeah, and yesterday there were over 300,000 new cases of covid-19 in the U.S.
At home, in our Oakland apartment Emma Clover has decided to take on a number of difficult tasks from cracking nuts, to making pancakes on her own and doing multiplication problems. She is trying them out and mastering them all at once. In addition to new endeavors she still volunteers at the bonsai garden, tells brilliant original stories and reads aloud chapter books with her own voices. It is amazing to witness child and human development and I am proud to see so much growth at a very insecure time in the world.
