At Least I Tried…

Today my son and I visited this place, specifically to view this.  My son has a fascination for the Titanic, and has read every book in our local library about it, as well as many others I have bought for him.  I would say he has read at least twenty books to date, not including information from various websites.  So we decided to indulge him and journey a hundred miles or so to see actual artifacts salvaged from the wreckage.

Anyhoo, Balboa Park is an absolutely beautiful place, and it was his second time visiting, but I knew he remembered nothing from that last visit as he was too young.  As we were rushing across the park to make our appointed exhibit time, I couldn’t help but marvel at the Spanish-inspired Churrigueres architecture present in many of the building designs.  If there is one knock I have on Southern California, it is that we are fairly architecture-poor.  Which is a shame because I really love it.

So, hoping to inspire my own offspring with this admiration, I had us stop and examine the particular building in the photo above.

“What do you think about that building?” I asked in a non-threatening, open-ended sort of way meant to lead to deep discussion.

“What do I think about that building?” he replied.  “I think it looks really expensive, that’s what I think.”

Definitive answer, conversation over.  He was already moving on towards our ultimate destination.

OK, then.

Who knows, perhaps I at least planted a seed?
