“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.”
— Pema Chödrön
Welcome to the sky!
Parenting in the nest is much simpler. They need to be fed. They need to go to bed. They need stories. They need snuggling.
Parenting as they fly is exciting–and terrifying. I’m no expert, but I’ve learned a few things in my 18 years in and around the nest–with two boys, hundreds of students, and 7 younger siblings. Mostly, I have no idea what I’m doing; But I’m paying attention, and following the cues, and taking risks, and being creative, and hoping that my little birds don’t crash.
I hope you’ll join me in the sky to take an unabashed look of what it means to fly… From sex to drugs & alcohol, driving, dating, deciding, and more.
