Books are the healthiest way to learn about gravity

You will find truth more quickly through delight than gravity. Let out a little more string on your kite.
Alan Cohen

I can do a lot of things. My kids are constantly updating me about all the things they are learning to do. Today, my son informed me that he doesn't need help any more opening the straw on his juice box.  Sigh.

I worked for a long time to prove to everyone around me all the things that I can do.  Since childhood, I've made quite a long list. So, yes, now I can make espresso, and write a funding proposal and give a resistant toddler antibiotics, and I can unclog a toilet and clear a jam in a photocopier.  

The problem with my list is that all of those things involve gravity.  I'm going to start attempting things that defy gravity for a while. It's time to make a new list.
