Dear J-

I have not noted, for fear of bragging pride, how well she’s been doing in school: inquisitive and picking up Mandarin at a fearsome rate, singing songs from my youth and in a better accent than I ever could have managed. Thirty years down the line will her school seem as antiquated as mine does now?

I remember the deadly serious business of Kindergarten, the way I knew everything was just so and nothing other than the rigid rules that governed my life, from stepping on cracks to wendingos and bloodstones threatening your existence if not handled JUST SO. It’s what she has, and what she needs, and we’ll be there later when she moves on again.
