explaining the mystery, soundtrack, and cool
posted by soe 11:52 pm

It’s late, so we’ll mostly skip the preamble. Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. We have dinner with two high school friends of Rudi’s and their spouses. The friend who cooks dinner has two little girls, precocious and adorable. The older of the two girls, who’s seven, overhears us discussing the science of science fiction and asks for an explanation of tractor beams. When her mother is able to walk her through an admirable model that involved a tricycle, a jump rope, and a dump truck, I’m impressed. But when I remember Heather is a minister and chaplain at a local high school, I figure explaining Star Trek technology to a first-grader might be easy by comparison.

2. Rain is plinking down at bedtime a couple nights this week.

3. Jeans and long sleeves and knee highs and wool socks have made this week one filled with clothes I haven’t seen in a while.

What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

If you were going to knit a pair of two-color, knee-high, argyle socks, which two colors would you pick?
