I had the furnace air filter in my blogging capsule awaiting the appropriate time for installation when it occurred to me that out of all the random crap around the house perhaps this filter is profound as a metaphor.
In some small way I, too, am a filter, sucking up the dirty, dirty polluted vapors of our materialistic parenting culture and breathing out the pure air of high-concept childrearing.
I asked the nine-year-old what he thought about such things. He just gave me a look and asked if I wanted a turn flying his remote control helicopter. Some things are just super cool.
