I finally figured it out, and so I’m going to tell you. You see… Ender: “Mom! Where are you?” …you’ve been asking me for years, “How do you do it?” What I thought you were asking was “How do you work and take care of your babies; how do you write and…

"Productive artists" #ritual #productivity #chaos #anxiety

This week, I am pensive and volatile, introspective and critical, vibrating with anxiety and full of energy. I am all these conflicting, competing things and I am struggling to make my words perform the way they want to. Flora: “I’m feeling so sad. I…

Food dye in the toilet tank and other tales #humor #parenting #communication

I. Pop culture rules, according to Flora: “If you wanna be a pop star, you’ve got to have a rapper friend.” I think she nailed it, don’t you? II. Agriculture, as Ender sees it: “Wheat is the most important crop, because you need it to make cupcakes.…

Something different: "Look!" http://wp.me/p2iW8G-14Z #rumi #thichnhathanh #truth

Fragment 1 Her: Look! Me: No. I don’t wanna. Her: Look! Come on! How are you going to understand if you don’t look? That’s the point. I don’t want to understand. If I don’t look, if I don’t see, I don’t have to start to understand. I can stay here, away.…

I. Client: What I want you to do is, well—I want you to read my mind and to deliver a product that’s exactly what I need and want it to be—without me having to tell you what it is that I want and need. Got it? I don’t actually want to take the time to […]

Roadkill http://wp.me/p2iW8G-14N #humor #attachmentparenting #attachmentparentingtheolderchild

I. The car in front of us hits a jaywalking squirrel and as I swerve to not roll over the destroyed, twitching little body, Flora bursts into tears. “Can we stop, can we save it?” There is nothing to save; it is too dangerous to stop. I shake my head. She…

(in parentheses) #yycstorm

I just wanted to tell you… … (I have k.d. lang singing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah on a loop in the background. That tells you everything you need to know, really. No? You want details, background? No. Today, I sketch in faint pastels, impressions. The…
