When you  were three or four years old, did you ever want to be a mountain lion? A street sweeper? An astronaut? A fish? Dr. Harville Hendrix has categorized that age range of a child as the “Identity” stage. Even at that early period in development, a child already is transitioning from exploration of his or her environment to “alternative life styles”. Ideally, aware conscious parents will allow their children — unconditionally, and without judgment — to assert their desires to become whatever they express as good choices as any. (The quality of “allowing” is as good for the parents, as well as for the children who are “allowed” to be whatever they are to be. Allowing is one of the crucial components of love.)

Unfortunately, often this is not the case.

For my first composition of 2016, I decided at the start to throw perspective and other “realism” under the bus — or the broom, in this case — in favor of a higher order of reality.
