day 2421: to infinity and beyond!

odin is totally fascinated with space and spaceships and space travel, which is amusing and somewhat perplexing since he watches almost no television or movies, doesn’t talk about such things with friends ( to the best of my knowledge ) and his preferred reading draws heavily on the decidedly non-sci-fi works of thorton burgess and kenneth grahame.

on a recent long trip in the car, instead of drawing – say – a nice picture of one of the wonderful characters in “the wind in the willows” ( which we’ve read innumerable times ), he spent time drawing this rocket blasting through the deep, dark depths of space on some important cosmic mission.

perhaps a manifestation of jung’s collective unconscious? just kidding. sort-of.

day 2375: art of the knight life.

in addition to asking santa for some snow tires for christmas, odin also asked for a knight’s outfit. sword, sheath, shield, head garb. thankfully he didn’t ask for a full suit of armor, just the basics to add the right amount of authenticity to imagined Authurian Adventures with friends.

i suspect santa thought it was a pretty neat request because he came through in A Big Way.

odin was so pleased with the gifts he painted a picture of himself in the outfit that i could “take to work”.

so thoughtful – thank you odin.
