Some Thoughts

  • The simple act of taking care of a living creature is transformative.
    • All the little things you must do for a helpless creature to keep it alive cause you to love it.
  • Small children are a mood-altering substance.
    • The consequences of risk-taking behavior become less acceptable: you become (appropriately) more risk averse.
