Henry has declared a new goal.
"When I grow up, I am going to be an artist."
As an artist myself, this made my heart soar. I may be biased and it may mean he would be a starving artist but for me to see him say that just makes my day. What he may not realize is this, he is ALREADY an artist. It's just a matter of keeping this aspect of him alive and breathing through all the trials and tribulations a child has to endure when growing up in a world of systematic culture bias and vampire-like shuffling of state testings over the true quality of education. In the meantime, I am going to relish this dream of his.
