New Talent

While attending a talent show at my brother's elementary school today, I observed that modern society has imposed itself even on the creative habits of children. That is to say, there is no such thing as simple ballet dance anymore. Even gymnastics has blended itself into a style of dance that one might describe in words which would be inappropriate for the same kids who participate in the dance. While it might be a good form of exercise, I fear it prepares them for the wrong types of future careers -- show girls in Las Vegas, Britney Spears-esque, and worse.

That said, the other musical pieces were very good. There was variety and a very good attempt at the Star Wars theme song...

I was pleasantly surprised at the musical quality (if not the dance). But also glad that Josh plays piano and has not asked lately about playing clarinet. (I fear I would need a soundproof room).
