Things My Father Taught Me About Love
Recognizing the importance of the how

Never too old to learn like a child

Years ago I was lured into buying a paperback child’s travel book for my young grandson because Travel logthe book’s title brought back years of memories from traveling with six sons and listening to the infamous words:

“Are We There Yet??”

The book found its way back to my house and sits on a shelf near my computer. I can always see it out of the corner of my eye while I’m writing, and recently I find myself repeating the title in my head while I’m working on something, “Are we there yet, are we there yet?”

In frustration I decide to leaf through the book again, and I realize that many of the puzzles, activities and games on the pages could be useful exercises of reflection for my writing, my business and my life.

Take for example the “TRAVEL LOG,” a page divided into four squares, with bright primary colors and a cartoon car speeding along the top banner. The four squares are titled “Been There” “Done That” “I’d Like to GO There” and I NEVER Want to go There.”

Pardon me while I get my crayons.
