“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 Forgive the Man I Don’t Want To Be

Issue 09 of STAND Magazine is officially out in the world, and it includes my essay “Learning To Forgive the Man I Don’t Want To Be.”

Learning To ForgiveThis is the most vulnerable piece of fatherhood writing I’ve done. I dug deep for this one and hope it helps others.

As ever, I deeply appreciate the continuous support of Editor-in-Chief Dwayne D. Hayes and everyone at STAND.
