      I’ve seen it, you probably have also. But you can’t plan on lightning striking you, and you can’t build a business with money you find in the street. Both blogging and publishing take time: time to learn, time to practice, time to get right. Maybe everything worth doing is the same. Blogging and publishing are, to my mind, similar activities.   Finally, I tried to stick to books that don’t just include a diverse cast, but actively teach about diversity and inclusion. I do think that books like Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyers that include diverse families without actively teaching about diversity are also great additions to any kids’ library, as well as general books about celebrating difference, like It’s Okay To Be Different.

I’m at home, teaching without most of my books. We’re making do. Dickinson’s poem begins like this: I heard a Fly buzz – when I died – The Stillness in. This idea makes some people’s skin crawl, but thus far it’s been one of the truest indicators of real manhood I’ve been able to find. It doesn’t take much effort to be selfish. In fact, it’s one of the most natural ways for us to live. Children plop into our lives as miniature insurgents, waging war with our lifestyle of “me first.”.
