    Based on a true story...95 Decibels explores the emotional obstacles parents face when they get an unexpected diagnosis of hearing loss for their child.

  • My life has simultaneously narrowed and widened

    My life has simultaneously narrowed and widened People ask me, with some regularity, how I “do it all.” Of course, I don’t. There is plenty I don’t do. And I have been thinking about that a lot lately, of the immensely different ways we each populate our hours and what they say about what we value. Every hour of our life is a choice, a trade-off between competing priorities and desires. We are all given the same number of hours in a day. What do you prioritize? What do you care about? Where are you spending your time? In the last several years my own life has simultaneously narrowed and widened. It has narrowed because I have substantially cut down on external (non-job and non-family) commitments. I say no much more often than I say yes.

  • Night at the White House....

    You cant miss the following excerpts from Mara Davis' blog...Night at the White House...click on the link below to read the entire piece! ...How does a Atlanta gal end up at the Ford’s Theatre Lincoln Medal of Honor ceremony?  My brother Ian has a big job in Washington DC that requires him to go to big events. Every now and then I get to be the +1 and jump at the chance to attend.  This is how I got to the Kennedy Center Honorsa few times.When we arrived, the security was tight.  You go through three check points to get in.  There’s secret service, security and bomb sniffing dogs everywhere.  According to Ian, it wasn’t always like this.  The Sahali disaster (!!) changed the set up.The difference between this event and a tourist tour is that these rooms are normally roped off.

    A story every mom will appreciate from Chrishaunda Lee Perez's “Yes, i Brought It Up”  essay series on her website, Me Time... Kids say the darndest things, don’t they?I was leaning topless over my six-year-old daughter trying to reach something on her night stand table.  As if she was given whiplash by my breasts, she exclaimed to me, “Mommy, they’re long!”My husband was within earshot, but luckily or him, his back was turned to us. He is lucky that I did not hear a chuckle. Double lucky that I did not see his shoulders bounce from trying to laugh silently to himself.
