An Apology to my 10 year old Daughter
I'm so sorry to drag you out on the weekends when you'd rather be home.
It's just I want you to get outside. We've got so little land left here in the Silicon Valley to appreciate. Those sprawling dusty ranches and blooming orchards that I once took for granted are no longer.
And so, while your peers are glued to their iPhones or Wii, I want you to lift up that beautiful face of yours and marvel at the wildflowers and bobcats and deer that hang out in any of our few open space preserve parks.
I'm sure one day you will thank me.
