Here is an interesting test of parenting: My daughter would like me to learn to do this with her. This involves her dropping her school work to practice it, and my dropping, well, everything else. But it is so, so cool. And also, true to the lyrics, I know that one day my daughter will have a ticket for the long way round, and I am going to miss her when she’s gone. She won’t always want me to do something with her. So I am trying to be patient, and engaged, and have fun while I’m at it. For me, sadly, this is tougher than it should be, but I am so glad that I still have the chance.
