My fight against The Piggyback Guy over the past couple of days was made easier this morning by the love of my wife, the kindness of a friend, a second cup of coffee following a restless night, and reading The Sunday New York Times while sipping it.

I’ve been starting my mornings making these “meditative drawings” in my Techo. A slowly growing circle starting at a center point and containing a single continuous line. An art lesson taught by my daughter’s teacher at school.

Learn from your kid. Learn through your kid.
