Taavi and I didn’t go to New York for my mom’s 80th. Omicron made it too risky by several measures, including the possibility that we wouldn’t be able to get back to Germany on any particular timetable. Our travel dates have come and gone without any borders closing. But that’s the whole deal with exponential growth. It easily could have gone the other way. It was right for us to stay here; I had and have no doubts. We celebrated my mom’s 80th anyway, in a variety of ways, and we’ll celebrate some more when we can be in person again.

Day after day, Finias has been gaining 20% more functionality. Things he can say, things he can do, opinions he can have. Here and there he stops to recharge with a hug or a hair touch (he continues to love touching people’s hair) before chugging off at high speed in whatever direction.
