Lessons from Childhood

By | June 30, 2023

[June 30, 2023]  I was a bit naïve as a child, perhaps too insulated in our small Southern town, tucked away in the rural forested flatlands of Louisiana.  And school was a place you had to go; that’s how it was, and I lacked the motivation to do well academically.  I liked running free, skipping through the woods,… Read More »

Letters to my Granddaughter: No. 7

By | June 23, 2023

[June 23, 2023]  Looking back on my time as a kid, I’m not so sure I was using my thinking abilities properly.  Yeah, the men in my town were nearly all combat veterans.  I was enthralled by their harrowing experiences, cool demeanor, pretty girlfriends, tales of growing up in the boonies and swamps of Louisiana, great physical strength,… Read More »
