It’s in the Blood

It’s always interesting to see your child’s proclivities. You can’t help but compare, and contrast, them to your own, seeking continuities and discontinuities, trying to fathom what’s nature and what’s nurture. Lily likes to diagram things (just like me):

City Map (2008-07-13)

According to Lily, this is “a map to a city. On yellow, and black, roads you go slow. You stop on red roads. You go on green and blue roads. And on purple roads you go fast fast.”

Air Conditioning Diagram (2008-08-16)

Lily prepared this diagram last summer around this time when our air conditioning compressor died. She drew this to help me fix it.
