Redefining what it means to Lean In
My iPhone makes me crazy. For days now it’s been warning me I’m close to full storage. That means going through and sending to the cloud anything I want to keep and deleting anything I don’t want to keep. I use the Voice Notes app for my research interviews...

Choose love, people, for everyone's sake, choose LOVE
My heart has been breaking in my Facebook news feed today. So many of my “friends” are speaking out against accepting Syrian refugees. They say the refugees threaten our national security. They say we don’t have the resources to sustain them. They say they ...

To my best friend on her wedding day
The speech I would have given if I hadn't been drinking all day... You look amazing. It’s not just the dress and the hair and the make-up. It’s also the way you wear that smile. Sometimes it’s hard for me to tell if that smile is a mask and behind it is all...

Outliving Our Nanas
Today’s is Tami’s first day without her Nana. Today she’ll blink into the sunlight as it seems extra bright to tear-filled eyes. She’ll take deeper breaths than yesterday remembering how Patsy struggled to breathe. She’ll wonder about a future that Nana wil...

I

Workshop here and I blogged over at GenX stories here . But,
alas, Clemson Road, I did not post anything new in March. It

about before . My ...

What parents of onlies know
Charlie and
I are both middle kids. Classic cases of left-out, overlooked, constantly
compromising, and all that other middle kid BS.   Maybe it was all we knew, but we expected to
have multiple kids in our household. For any
number of reasons, though, we s...

Looking for Disruption in 2016
From the beginning, some 100+ posts ago, this blog has been about life in transition. Photo by: Naldz Graphics There was very little transition in 2015 and so fewer blog posts than in the years before. But right at the end, late December, things began to sh...

Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child
A  lot of GenXers are loathe to admit we should have been wearing bike helmets as kids. It seems silly to us that our kids see them as essential as a seatbelt in the backseat or hand sanitizer before snack. When did we get so deliberate in our safety effort...

An Overdue Thanks to Someone Whose Love I Earned
I’ve been fortunate enough in my life to earn my family.  There are some who’d tell you family is born of you — kin, they call it — trees and blood and heritage and all that shit. I have that. I have the people I’m stuck with, the ones who annoy and degrade...

Homecoming Post In Under the Wire
I paid up today. I registered for the full reunion event and paid up. Even
got the hotel room booked and paid for. We’ve been committed since September, since I took on a more
aggressive workout schedule and this crazy-ass diet. We’ve been planning to go fo...

I Don't Want to Break Up with Brian Williams
I’m broken
hearted over this whole Brian Williams thing. By all
accounts, Williams is a gifted storyteller. He’s known for spinning yarns,
entertaining small groups of colleagues and coworkers with quips and tales.
He’s engaging and magnetic and his stories...

Teachable Moments on the Side of a Mountain
There’s a great recurring joke on Modern Family wherein Cam
and Mitchell are attempting to respond to Lily’s behavior and they declare the
instance a “teachable moment.” It reminds the rest of us that we can react irrationally to
our children or we can help...
