We recently took a family trip to the OKC Museum of Art to take advantage of free admission courtesy of Sonic and Metro Family magazine. We were short on time, but my daughter decided to take a sketchbook and make a check for everything she liked — plus one “O” for a thing she didn’t. She also spent time drawing a still life scene from memory, as we walked between exhibits.
After looking at a lot of art that she liked, asking us questions, and making her checks, we came upon a sculpture titled “Tendon on Pallet.” She asked what it was, I read her the title, and we both shrugged. I wanted to take time to talk about what made art “art” but couldn’t find the right words, so the the best explanation I could give her was “you don’t have to understand it, just appreciate that someone created it.”
Is this the real code?
Is this thing testable?

How this function works, it’s not very clear;
I’ve stack traced, xDebugged
var_dumped, returned, console logged.
Anyway the logic flows, doesn’t really make sense to me…
oh, it’s async.
Jessica heard a thunk earlier today and found the bird nest that’s normally on the back porch light slightly askew. Robins built it when we first moved in, but a pair of finches have taken residence there in the recent weeks. I thought I saw them feeding hatchlings a couple of days ago, but never could get close enough to look inside.
Tonight after dinner, I saw the cat Joanna saw in the backyard earlier today, perched on the window ledge and getting ready to jump up into the nest. I shooed it away, but I think the damage was already done. I hope the little ones got away.
(The slides for this talk have been removed until I can find an accessible and maintained solution. Thanks.)
