“Learning To Connect” now online

My essay “Learning To Connect” — on the practice of friendship and vulnerability — is now online! Read it here.

“Learning To Connect” first appeared in the most-recent print issue of STAND Magazine. It’s the final essay in my fatherhood-as-learning series that appeared in STAND throughout 2018.

I’m really proud of the series and truly grateful to STAND Editor-in-Chief Dwayne Hayes for the opportunity and solidarity.

Though this series has concluded, my writing about fatherhood as learning and responsibility continues!

Learning To Connect

The new issue of STAND arrived in my mailbox today!

“Learning To Connect,” the last essay in my fatherhood-as-learning series in STAND Magazine, appears in print here. It tackles isolation, forming male friendships in adulthood, and the examples we set for our kids.

My deepest thanks to STAND Editor-in-Chief Dwayne D. Hayes for providing a regular place for my reflections during the past year. Solidarity, my friend.
