    Stuff in My Drawers Day: Kid Art  Now that Maia (at 3 years and 1 month old) is getting enough manual dexterity to create images of questionable artistic value, I thought I would see how my own artwork from a similar age looked.   I drew this first image on the back of some dot matrix printer paper at the age of 2 years and 9 months. Hopefully it was not drawn on the topic of gun violence.     At 3 years and 7 months, my line work had greatly improved. This is apparently a microscopic fantasy world where the sun is a benevolent paramecium and chimneys double as rocket launchpads.

    Maia's First Stories  Here are two works of art created by Maia and Rebecca, along with stories that Maia dictated about them to Rebecca.      The Beach    There are dolphins at the beach. Maia, Mommy, and Daddy are looking out at the ocean. The sand is dry.     Here are the bunnies looking out at the purple ocean. There is a big purple wave coming! Some of the sand fell on the bunny's head. The bunny got a sunburn. There is a rain cloud. But the bunnies have an umbrella! The Big Umbrella! It's hard when you're tall, because when the bunnies grow tall, they don't quite fit under the umbrella. The End.

    Stuff in My Drawers Day: July 1992  Here's what was going on in July 28 years ago, based on our junior high school's Literary Calendar. You can tell it's a high quality calendar because it lists the incorrect date for Jan Berenstain's birthday (and also shows the birthday of an enigmatic author named Heminway, which clearly should be "Hemi-way"). I was 12 and going into 9th grade.       Took art classes all day long on Saturdays at the Torpedo Factory.   Helped my dad build a shed in the backyard (#1 of 2 through the years).   Went camping with my Boy Scout troop at Granite Hill in Gettysburg.   Watched my neighbor's yippy chihuahua, Rusty, for 2 weeks.   Purchased the VGA remake of  Quest for Glory...

    39th Day  With each day of self-quarantine running together featurelessly like every scene in  Gosford Park , I don't have anything new to talk about today.   Here is a video of Maia going head-first down a slide for the very first time, taken exactly 1 year ago today.      Here's Maia independently discovering that she can hold a book up by crossing her legs, taken on the sly during the two hours she sneaks out of bed to read the Berenstain Bears every night.     And here are Maia and Rebecca reading yet another Berenstain Bears book online through the Loudoun Library, taken last night. Maia is intentionally wearing three layers, two of which are dresses.    ...

    Virtual Paint Day  On Day 35 of self-quarantine, we did a virtual painting date through Pinot's Palette. Rebecca picked up the canvases and paints from our local shop where we used to do paint dates in person. I jury-rigged an easel using scrap wood and dozens of zip ties.           Guess which one of us painted the Left and Right pictures!

    Stuff in My Drawers Day: Bunnies, Part I   A small subset of the bunnies I have been conscripted to draw.        " Maia, what should I draw next? It doesn't have to be a bunny. "   " No, it gonna be a bunny. "       Other posts in this series:  Part I  |  Part II  |  Part III

    Dark Day   Interested in watching   Dark   on Netflix but worried that you'll get lost amongst the millions of white actors speaking German? I've created a set of character reminder sheets to guide your watching in a progressive, spoiler-free way.   The intent of these sheets is to provide quick reminders of names and faces, not a dedicated family tree or relationship structure. Characters are only added after their first extended scene or speaking role. You can print a sheet out after you finish each episode, and use that sheet to remind yourself of the characters in the subsequent episode. Enjoy!    Spoiler Warning! There are spoilers from Season One of  Dark  in these links. D...

    Stuff in My Drawers Day: Choir Sketch  This picture was drawn sometime in the late 1980s, at the United Methodist Church on Washington Street in Alexandria.     My parents were regular members of various choirs that practiced on Tuesday evenings. In the awkward period where we were too old for babysitters but too young to stay home alone, we would often be forced to tag along to practice sessions and play quietly in the pews.   After getting yelled at for running around various churches and disrespecting their sacred nature, we would calm down and read books or draw pictures (this was a few brief months before we got our first 8-bit Gameboy). I was probably in 4th or 5th grade when I captured this choir practice on paper. Apparently, they ...

    Google+ Death Day  To commemorate the final death rattle of Google+, here is my (unsurprisingly short) entire Google+ feed since 2011.     Looks like we've reached the end, indeed.

    Paint Day  As a delayed Valentine's outing, we did another paint'n'wine outing at Pinot's Palette. Here is the original:     See if you can figure out which half is mine and which half is Rebecca's!

    Stuff in My Drawers Day  I drew this picture in kindergarten, for Christmas 1984. My narration was transcribed by one of the teachers, Ms. Lovo.     Clearly, I was an unreliable narrator. My dad and I never went out and chopped down a Christmas tree even once, and definitely not one with a star already on it. We got live trees with all the roots from a local lot and then planted them in the backyard after Christmas, where they died within months.   Also, I'm pretty sure that bird is an airplane.

    Extra Baby Picture Day   For everyone who wants more baby pictures.      The last hurrah for the YAY balloon, which held shape for over a year before starting to melt down the wall like a Dali painting.     Maia is used to the Tallest Grandpa now and doesn't cry when he enters the room.     An afternoon walk along Holmes Run in Alexandria.     Maia excels at following directions.
