This could be a book! An Asian comic wrote the story of her career beginning and the story of meeting their father and organized a book called DEAR GIRLS. Life lessons for all of us. The best way to learn is from anyone’s honest story.

Thanks for sharing and reading, Carol. Publishing it’s something I’ve been thinking about. I’ll take this as the affirmation I needed, thank you.

“How are the children?” is a wonderful and important greeting. Starting from that question helps remind us to prioritize the kids. And I think you are right that many of the other problems in society can be better addressed when we center the children, or recognize that we were all once children. Thank you.

The picture of you rejoicing with your little button is just lovely! I have the same shot with my boy, hanging on the wall— now he is 17 and towers over me, and I still have sleepless nights fretting about how to make this world better for him. This is indeed our truest work, Marc, and the only work that really matters.

Caroline, I agree. When it really comes down to it, this is what it’s about. No place I rather be either.

Love hearing your voice, Marc.. that you were a teacher, you believe focusing on children will soften our world! Placing yourself in a future that has no guarantees is the bravest, wisest thing I know… nice getting to know you better, sweet man!

Thank you, Joan. I’ve learned more from the students I taught than they did from me. Grateful for them.

This is beautiful on so many levels. So much of it I needed to hear today, as I deal with both work issues and family heartache. Wish I'd had as much insight in my 20's when my children were but babies. Never too late though, so whoever needs to hear this, you can begin the process of shifting your mindset and healing old wounds, no matter the ages of your children or yourself.

Thank you for sharing.

Wow, Marc! This is so beautiful. I had tears in my eyes reading this. What a beautiful way to witness the world and take up space. Definitely one to reflect on more and made me be more witness to why being an auntie is my current greatest role. So much of my journey is encapsulated by my littles and the big, anything is possible life I want them to live. Thank you for sharing your journey and wisdom.
