Yesterday Helena brought home a fabulously weird drawing: her papa battling a vampire, blood on its lips, Helena watching, terrified, from the corner of the page. Detail below:

Here's Helena in a state of terror fleeing some prehistoric scorpion at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, a couple weeks ago:

To my eyes, the resemblance is striking.

It's entirely possible "you had to be there" to appreciate the likeness. I was. And it is positively amazing. And hilarious. I miss you and the simple pleasures of having a holiday with a 5-year old girl.
