What are you waiting for?
May 21, 2011

We think more logically now. As teenagers, we think more deviously. We make excuses, we lie, we hide things. We concoct plans we never would have thought of before. Plans that will get us in trouble, but we do anyway, just for the thrill. We’re young. We have all the time in the world to make mistakes, to choose the wrong path, but also to figure out where we fit and what makes us happy. Because that’s what life really is. It’s about taking chances. It’s about jumping into deep waters, even when you can’t see the bottom. Sure, you’ve got everything to lose, but you also have everything to gain.  If you sit around constantly afraid of everything, you’ll get no where. So don’t live with regrets. Do what you want to do, when you can do it. And most of all, take that chance. Just jump in.

A complex question
July 10, 2010

Actual children’s answers to the question:
“What is love?” 

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.”
Billy, age 4

“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.”
Terri, age 4

“Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.”
Mary Ann, age 4

“Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.”
Tommy, age 6

“Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt and then he wears it every day.”
Noelle, age 7

“Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.”
Bobby, age 7

“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Brad Pitt.”
Chris, age 7

“Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.”
Danny, age 7

“Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.”
Emily, age 8

“I don’t know any other way to be.”
“You just can’t be so sad.”
“Guess that’s the way it is.”
“Why are you subjecting yourself to it though?”
“Because I deserve it.”
“No one deserves such sadness.”
“I deserve it after all the pain I’ve caused. I have to learn how my actions hurt others and this is the only way I can fathom to do so.”
