Shame, Blame, Grief

Mixed with a concoction of doubt Shaming a child leaves a scar that goes to the bones of who we think we are.  The finger pointing in a small face, the look of disgust on a parent’s face, the sinking sensation in the pit of the stomach penetrate to the core.

I Blocked My Own Voice!!!!

“I can’t hear you!”, the words in bold as I opened an email from my recent radio guest, On River Time. What? I logged into the radio archive vault to listen to the recent interview recording.
