The future in a rear view mirror

February 19th, 2008

This is the only way to see where I am going.

Editorial Note: Spend your day hauling a posse of second-grade girls and you won’t know whether to look forward, look backward or squeeze in-between.


  1. Gorgeous. This reminds me of my nephew’s famous (to me) line: “Backwards is the new forwards!”

  3. Definitely the best view. And look at those GREEN trees!

  4. I noticed the lushness too. Perhaps SoCal is closer to eternal bliss that Maryland where a mere hour long trike ride can leave a parent with painfully cold feet (we piloted our new go to school method today: 2nd grader roll on skates, 3 year old roll/be pushed on trike). It took roughly 2 or 3 times longer than the old method (carry three year old, second grader walk), but had much more excited laughter and I was cold rather than grumpy about carrying a tired 40 pounder.


    PS I have snow, freezing rain and sleet in my morning “5 day weather forecast”. I am hoping for enough cold to pump it up to a big blizzard, or at least to cancel school.

  7. If I were hauling a posse of second grade girls, I’d probably be looking for a way out of the car!
