i started STILL blog in january 2012 when my son, joseph, was 8 years old. now he is 18 years old. and tomorrow he returns home from washington dc where he has been doing an internship with the u.s. senator from minnesota amy klobuchar. today, while doing some work on my archive, i stumbled across this STILL image that joseph made for me in 2015 when he was 11 years old. oh how i miss those innocent days of dinosaurs and bugs. and yet, how proud i feel today of my son who texted last week to ask if we were following the manchin gambit. the bittersweet impermanence of childhood.
