    A Big Fear

    I just realized one of my biggest fears is having to raise my own children. It’s ironic because it’s totally one of my biggest dreams too.

    I’m afraid that I would give my children something that would plague them for the rest of their lives. I think only parents can really give a lasting impression on people. I’m afraid of not realizing opportunities for them when they come. I’m afraid of closing doors for them. I’m afraid of not being able to expose them to all possibilities. I’m afraid of having the capacity to let them appreciate things but not let them. I’m afraid of teaching them to dream really big, but lack the courage to have faith in their dreams.

    I’m afraid because no matter the happiness in growing up, no matter the needs you were able to provide, no matter the legacy you leave, no matter the apologies, a mark will be left. Sure, the anger will disappear; the distance will be shortened; the discontent will be tolerable. But the regret will remain.

    I’m afraid of leaving my child with a big “What if?” question when they begin to think for themselves.

    "

    My own feeling is that science fiction, of all the different forms of literature, is the one that most easily accepts the notion of change. Things are changing very quickly, and any kid who thinks about it knows that the world in which he or she will be a grown-up — which he or she will be helping to run — will be considerably different from this one. Maybe better, maybe worse, but different. Science fiction explores the future world.

    I think more and more young people are beginning to feel that science fiction is the kind of literature that a person interested in reality should be reading.

    "

    - Isaac Asimov

    A while back, I asked why it is that some science fiction is so good at predicting the future. Far and away, the most common answer was because people who read science fiction are then inspired to make that future a reality.

    Asimov knew that.

    Check out more from his 1983 interview with Dr. Julius Strangepork in Muppets magazine (yes, seriously) at Brain Pickings.

    My brother and I made a Finn sand sculpture! Haha. We wanted to do Jake as well but it didn’t turn out so good.

    Next time, we’ll make a whole body one. Haha.

    Wise words indeed.

    If you need an extra dose of artistic inspiration, check out novelist Young-ha Kim’s brilliant (and encouraging) TEDxSeoul talk — Be an artist, right now! It’ll get your creative juices going and remind you to tone down your inner critic and just create.

    You’re pretty astute for a fourth grader.

    One of the MANY MANY MANY heart-breaking details about Helga is that she IS smart. Heck, she’s BRILLIANT! She’s well versed in the arts (like in this photo set here), she can and does read WELL beyond the fourth grade level and writes volumes and volumes of poetry. She could have won the spelling bee if she didn’t intentionally take a dive to stick it to her dad and do Arnold a solid. Her anonymous poem won the school wide poetry contest. She’s remarkably intelligent and talented!

    …But how many times do we hear her compare herself to her sister or to Lila as “Okay so maybe I’m not smart, pretty, funny, popular or nice like Lila/Olga?” Despite the fact that she IS just as smart if not smarter than the both of them? How many times do we hear her compare herself to her best friend Pheobe - who if we are honest, will admit is more STUDIOUS than intelligent. And how many times do we hear her say “Maybe if I was prettier/nicer/smarter Arnold would like-like me back?”

    Helga was raised being constantly compared to her older sister. She’s been told so many times, directly and indirectly that she’ll never be as good or worthy of attention and affection as Olga. And there’s a part of her that believes this. She’s a 9 year old girl - and she believes she’s never going to be smart enough to be noticed. That’s why she resorts to bullying tactics, because negative attention is better than no attention at all.

    This is a mind blowing analysis of a character from a show that was never a point of focus for me. Kudos to you, whoever you are!
