My Spinner

My little girl has started spinning
in circles—probably excited about

Christmas. I understand that it’s an
important developmental milestone.

She’s trying to change her perception,
but as her father, I know I have to put

a stop to it immediately. I’ve been
down that road myself. Spinning in

circles is a gateway drug that leads
to harder stuff. Huxley’s Doors of

Perception—not to mention Jim
Morrison—and all the experimentation

that comes with it are just a few spins
away. In other words, if she wants to

alter her perception, she can get out
of my house.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
