July 29. Day 210. Under the microscope
In the new caring, sharing world, gone is the opportunity to talk to Little Johnny's teacher behind his back once a year. Nope, the child is in there front and centre. Where's the fun in that?
Anyway, today was parent teacher interviews that once-a-semester chance to put your child's performance under the spotlight. All the flaws and imperfections as well as all one's great strengths and positive attributes are placed under the microscope and examined.
It's an enlightening process but also a time consuming one. As a result I ran out of time to give much thought or effort into grabbing the camera and hitting the streets.
So here you get rain on a leaf from the garden just outside my front gate which has been made to fit the occasion. All the fine structure is there. You can see it but sometimes it is buried and obscured. Hopefully one sunny day it will emerge.
