Small is Good.

When the wild things contemplate eating Max, he tells them they can’t eat him because he’s a King.  “But you’re so small.”  They reply.  “Small is good.”  Explains Max.  “My powers are able to slip right through the cracks.”  “But what if the cracks are closed up?”  Ask the wild things.

January 5, 2019 - Growing Up With Social Media

February 7, 2017 - When I Grow Up

Written for the musical ‘Matilda’.

“I am not what happened to me,                                                                                                                                                            I am what I choose to become.”  Carl Jung.

November 25, 2015 - White Ribbon Day

Today is White Ribbon Day.  Australia’s campaign to prevent men’s violence against women.   I hope my story helps to answer the most often asked question ….Why Don’t They Just Leave?   (Click link for story.  If you have experienced violence the story may bring things up for you so please be careful).  You can do something to show support for the women, children and families affected by violence simply by reading the story and understanding better ‘why women don’t just leave’.  You can help break the silence by passing this on….

Other similar previous articles:  People Who HurtBlack Promise.  Surfers Swear.  And we can bring about change by teaching our boys not to use violence, and not treat our boys with violence as in this Boy Story and act against it, as I failed to do in this situation.
