A new proposal could be disastrous for the future of digital security. The language offered by Senators Burr and Feinstein would force tech companies to break the security of their products to make it easier for law enforcement to spy on people. Tell Congress today: oppose the Burr-Feinstein backdoor proposal.

The first time when we were making love during this period, that I noticed things were off, I caught her looking out the window, seemingly bored. "Are you okay?" I asked. She napped back. But the moment was despairing. And we were done.

It’s as if a mineral is missing from your entire being. Like if you could just identify the deficiency (iron, magnesium, calcium) you could bounce back to your old self. And sometimes a drug intended for other purposes (sleep or anti-anxiety) can give you a brief glimpse of that complete feeling again. But it’s not …

Let's leave that dishevelment alone. In our relationships lets not look for a person who needs our help, and not a person who can help us, either. Let us look for happy, healthy, and balanced.

Divorce changed everything about my life in a matter of weeks. From that collapse I have rebuilt a stronger, faster, smarter me.

[lovingly lifted from The Off Parent] When you look back at depression, sometimes you laugh with swagger and bravado. You pound your chest, offer support, and if/when the sadness sneaks up on you again… Boom. Quiet. I am also aware that knowing how to heal is very different from the one-foot-in-front-of-another struggle it sometimes takes …

I may never be 100% free of this terrible disease, but I can do better each time. I can show my care team where I hide and ask them to call me out every. single. time.

The joy of waking up your kids comes from the inner joy you have at being their parent, at supporting their dreams and the beginning of their day. Your energy and daily rhythm is up to you. And your commitment to bring their eyes open in a calm and pleasing manner might just be a gift you give them for life.

Here come the holidays, and as a single parent that means a lot of the time is going to be without your kids. What’s the plan? I was surprised yesterday, Thursday, when my kids arrived back in my life after a full week’s hiatus, how much my mood and behaviors changed. I had to get …
