Language Milestone

December 22, 2011

You may remember a post a while back about my son’s love for the phrase “all done” and my own fascination with their language-based creativity.  I recorded an audio version of that commentary for KUAF’s Ozarks at Large program, which you can hear by clicking on the link below.

Most of the work I do for radio tends to be more folklife/oral history based and less personal commentary. (you can find those writings here) but I’m exploring the possibility of doing more published writings about motherhood, simple living, and the fine line between grief and joy.

When I was a young child I wanted to be a writer (and a veterinarian).  I was also fiercely private.  As I got older I swore off writing.  And then somewhere along the way I stopped believing that hiding emotion or vulnerability would somehow save me from life’s unpredictability.  And I started writing again. So here we are.  Thanks for listening/reading.

More to come in the near future.
