Keppler-22b, Extrasolar Sailing, and the Mind of a Child

Gonna put the world away for a minute Pretend I don't live in it... Wishing I was knee deep in the water somewhere Got the blue sky breeze and it don't seem fair Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair Sunrise there's a fire in the sky Never been so happy Never felt so high And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise Mind on a permanent vacation The ocean is my only medication Wishing my condition ain't ever gonna go away (From Knee Deep by Zac Brown Band) I have a daily ritual at our dinner table of asking my kids to tell me one thing they learned and one thing they enjoyed at school. I joke with them that I'll be asking the school for a refund if they can't come up with something they learned each day. But more times than not, they not only tell me what they learned but they also teach me something I never knew or something I long since forgot. It's great! I get to feel like I'm back
