Be the Neighbor You Wish You Had
Be the change you want to see in the world. Write the book you want to read. Build the company you want to work for. Be the neighborhood you wish you had. Last time we got together with our neighbors, I
told them how I’d been bragging about how awesome they...

Love Builds Confidence
For Mother’s Day, Hollie gave me a picture card she’d drawn in school. It said:  Mom, You like to read and write with me, write and read, write and read, write and read. You work every day, work, work, work, work. You watch movies and shows with me, watch, ...

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 ...

We Got Lucky
It’s popular now to say “I married my best friend.” The sage advice from old married couples, the recommendations
of people who have experienced divorce, the ambition of young lovers is always “marry
your best friend.” Follow that advice, and you can make s...

So Long, Brando
I loved my Miata. It was little, sporty, quick, and an obvious declaration that it was just me and Charlie against the world. So in 2007 when we found out we were expecting Hollie, the first thing that had to go was the Miata. It was no longer just us. Most...

I love the idea of contrasting your protagonist with a foil. This is a good reminder to add dimensions to your characters.
By Rex Hurst In classic drama the term foil refers to a character which is created for the sole purpose of accenting a quality in a major character. For example in Sophocles’ ancient drama Antigone, the titular charac...

The Worst Day of Someone Else's Life
The first thought I had when I woke was “Today is going to be the worst day of someone’s life. But it’s not mine.” We buried a man that day. I knew from the minute I woke that the depth of suffering I would witness would astonish me. I’d truthfully never se...

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...
