  • The other day, a friend from the neighborhood I grew up in, in Radcliff posted a photo on Facebook that took me back a few decades.

    It wasn’t a Throwback Thursday-type deal. It wasn’t a photo of him, me, the neighborhood kids or of anybody, for that matter. It wasn’t even an old photo.

    It was a photo of a snake near a shed at his home.

    Yep. Snake.

    “Mom always wrote poems,” Ross said.

    Ross said she enjoyed hearing and telling stories and began journaling at a young age.

    “I never considered myself a writer,” she said.

  • In a fit of desperation and exhaustion that only comes with attempting to force my stubborn daughter to do something she didn’t want to do, I bought a parenting book.

    Now, I’m not normally one for self-help-type things. In the past, I looked down on that sort of thing, preferring to believe I could fix anything that was wrong with determination and my own brand of stubbornness.

    And then I became a parent. And lo, it was hard. And then I became a parent again and lo, it was even harder.
