School seems to be going well for the boy-child this year. He’s discovered a passion for business studies and this evening he initiated a conversation about law school.

Whatever he does, I hope he never loses his sense of self and his capacity for wonder.

  1. Thanks. Mine is all over the place with “career” ideas at the moment. He’s spent a few years at school doing fine arts subjects, but having finished those is now doing History and Business Studies and I think it’s subtly changing his perspective. I’m excited about the next few years!
