Happy New Year, dear readers.
My boys are profiled in the January 2012 issue of National Geographic Magazine. Pretty cool to have visitors from around the globe.
If you’re new here, welcome.
When we agreed to be interviewed for the NG story, life was a bit more predictable. Leave a crisis to change things a bit — stupid crisis is all me, me, me. It’s hard to focus when the fabric of your life is shifting. I must honor that shift, my writing feels contrived when I don’t. And yet? I’m in the thick of it.
You see why I haven’t written for some time. (And now I see that this is exactly what I should be doing.) I love this quote by Gilda Radner:
“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.”
Yes. Exactly. All in due time.
