My 15-month-old scribbled brilliantly. Now, at 26 months, he’s moved on to painting.

Time lapses, passes, and cycles around again. A new year begins. The medium is still the message. Finn has branched out into new media, and  I’m considering changes to my own scribbling medium, too—overhauls and undertakings.
