marching around exploring in a nourishing-exposure-rich environment under adult supervision

I’m dubbing 1989+ VHS recording tapes of my kids to 2014 DVD+RW discs. Beyond that I’ll move the .vob files to further-editable .mpeg files.

Beyond that who knows what formats will be the standards of the future. Boomers have been through this – our parents made Super 8 film movies and 35mm film slides – which, to be preserved, must also be digitally dubbed or scanned.

Regardless of the technologies – photograph, microfilm, yadda yadda yadda – in watching my kids go through their developmental stages – from being born to thrashing around on their back and front to being able to push up, turn over, pull up, and (yay!) walk then run then yadda yadda yadda… I am reminded how very much we all benefit from “marching around exploring in a nourishing-exposure-rich environment under adult supervision” up until, and here comes the rub, we must ourselves become the adults who set up nourishing environments for our kids and protégés but also for ourselves and peers.
