    Nothing else matters but how I raise my children ... and their opinion of me, as a father.

    Jimmy Buffet did a good job of this, but I still prefer Guy Clark:

    Not so much boaty. as riverine

    Duck's Ditty -

    by Kenneth Grahame


    All along the backwater,
    Through the rushes tall,
    Ducks are a-dabbling,
    Up tails all!

    Ducks' tails, drakes' tails,
    Yellow feet a-quiver,
    Yellow bills all out of sight
    Busy in the river!

    Slushy green undergrowth
    Where the roach swim —
    Here we keep our larder,
    Cool and full and dim.

    Every one for what he likes!
    We like to be
    Heads down, tails up,
    Dabbling free!

    High in the blue above
    Swifts whirl and call —
    We are down a-dabbling
    Up tails all!

    The song was originally written for a documentary film about the building of the schooner John F. Leavitt in 1979. That's a story in itself (link). it didn't go well.

    for nature cannot be fooled."

    For the most part experience is making the same mistakes over and over again, only with greater confidence.

    That concert is beyond any doubt the best recording that Denver ever did. I have it on the memory stick in my car and I play it often.
