Dec. 31

to the lobby, because I remember that in the lobby there is a Rist piece called, "nothing", a machine which, every ten minutes, blows bubbles full of smoke into the lobby. So we wait around, for "nothing," and when it comes, wrapped in a luminescent bubble we all just watch in wonder, an event! Nice one, Pippilota. 

We decided to go to Children's Museum of the Arts instead. We walk up Spring Street. Soho is one of the best places in the world to window shop. We saw a display at Papyrus of dozens of incredible wooden music boxes spinning around on a display. We watched tehm for 15 monutes.  

Stop to get tea at T2. Free samples. The new museum is too full so we there is a long line. So we just go into the lobby and look at the machine called nothing. 

We leave and pass a toy store papyrus, look at the music box mobile's for 15 minutes.

Pass a bath store and all the girls get rocksalt rocksalt skin treatment to make their skin soft.

The way my brain works, like a maze. Sofia showed me this maze she got from a birthday party gift bag. Look Dad, there's a giraffe and an alligator on this maze." I asked, "Why do you think they put a giraffe and an alligator on a maze?" "I don't know." "Maybe because the question that leads to the center of the maze is: would you rather be a kind giraffe, the animal with the largest heart of any land mammal? Or the cold-hearted alligator, laying in wait for his prey, the giraffe?" Sofia said, "That's a tough one." I said, "Yes, it is, a tough question that in some form or another you will be asking for the rest of your life. I think the answer, at the center of the maze, is to be a giraffe that stays as far away from the river as is giraffely possible." "But you what if you have to get a drink of water?" "Then try to find a secret source for water, like a rain barrel."
