This summer, I’m writing a novel about Gentrification, amateur music, and other sorts of growth in and around The Gowanus Canal.  Now that school is out, I’m hoping to post more frequently.






I am so grateful to my college friend Melissa Lawrence for allowing me to guest post at her terrific parenting site, CloudMom.  Melissa is a mother of five who shares all that she has learned in her years as a parent:  from swaddling to breastfeeding to learning not to take it all so darn seriously.

And today, a little bit from me.  Lean In or Opt Out?  We chose Run Away.  It’s a short introduction to our year in Southern France, chronicled in Home Away:  A Year of Misapprehensions, Transformations, and Rosé at Lunch Enjoy the post, and spend some time with CloudMom.

Thanks, Melissa!
