*sigh* Where does the time go?

I don't have time to post/contribute here any more. Even if I did, my life basically revolves around my daughter rather than thoughtful appreciation of art and found art.

No matter how awesome the scribblings of an 18-month old are to this daddy, I kind of miss "culture".

Josh, You are doing exactly what you should be doing at this stage of things. . . appreciating that darling baby and your dear wife. Lifelong learning includes learning about the mind and ways of 18 month old girls. In fact, that is the best of all the learnings.
