Pride, In The Name Of Love

June 29, 2011

Once upon a time, before I had children, I expected that when I did have children, they would be smart children, and that they would excel in everything that they did, and that this is what I would want for them – to be excellent – and this is what would make me happy, as [...]

Flying Without Wings

June 19, 2011

I can still remember, vividly, the day that my father taught me to ride a bicycle. We lived at the end of a quiet suburban street lined with cherry and dogwood trees, our house set back from the cul-de-sac by what seemed to me, at age 5, to be a very long and very wide [...]

A Hypothesis Is A Wish Your Brain Makes

April 2, 2011

‘Mommy, I have a hypothesis.’ Emilia is on a science kick right now. ‘What kind of hypothesis, sweetie?’ ‘It’s about Disney World.’ ‘Okay.
