2018. This is the year where the left hand and right hand come together, where I try to make my worlds and my work converge, where I talk about race and microaggressions and what that did to distort and contort me, and talk about the lack of agency in kids due to overparenting and what to do about it, and it's the year when I'll write my third book, How to Be an Adult, in an attempt to be of use to my #millennial friends struggling with adulting.
What ties it all together is this: I love humans, I believe in all of us, I root for all of us, I want us all to have a chance to make it in this one precious life.
Thanks for joining me here. We’re in it together.
