Getting back to writing after a year off for school gives me both a parallel path and a need to prioritize. Meeting our personal expectations as writers and within the day-time professional sphere can be more than challenging. I’d dare say my own expectations for...

Constructivist in our midsts

It's come to my attention that we have a constructionist on our hands. It should have been obvious, but here we are. To invigorate this reluctant reading-heavy building child seeking to understand his universe, I'm finding unusual books and pairing them with materials...
