Some Excellent Essays!

I just discovered a great treasure: an on-going series of little essays by my nephew James Sander-Cederlof. He calls it Tilted Talk.

  • The Walk — When a child asks about the strange way he walks...
  • Commercials — Thoughts about mis-directed and thoughtless TV commercials.
  • Hot Coffee — "There is nothing wrong with knowing your child; that is called being a parent. Since when did it become un-cool to have a game that you do not mind your child seeing you play?"
  • The Price of Education — "It is astonishing how much better home-schooled children behave, act, and think compared to those in the public education system."
  • 9/11 Revisited — His flight was cancelled, just in time.
  • Education, Again — "You became involved with your child nine months or so the child was born. Remain involved throughout their life; the education of the child should not stop at some magical age. Only the subject matter should change. Just keep God at the center, and the other things will fall into place."
  • Spiritual Leaders — "Our leaders should be men of faith."
  • Lawyers in Love — Afterthoughts from a lawyer's TV commercial.

James also writes poems, and you can read some of them here.
