What’s on your mind? The state of the world? A parenting challenge? Something in the news?

For my part, I’ve been thinking about the “signifying monkey” tradition that I just learned about this week at an adoptive parent forum (see here, and here [the 2nd is NSFW]). It came up after a parent talked about how her son, the only black student in the class, had been assigned the part of a monkey in the class play. Sound familiar? I thought so, too. Sigh.

What have you been thinking about?
