At this point, I have embraced this destabilizing, sometimes excruciating, sometimes wondrous experience of having a trans-IDed child as “curriculum of the soul.” Because I can’t help but imagine how different the world might be if we could all take the hardest thing in our lives and view it as this, as curriculum of the soul. Practitioners of Stoicism might say, "the obstacle is the way." These are my conversations and reflections--along the way.
Episode details

This is the most raw of what I’ve published so far. This is from 2019. I’ve felt on pretty solid ground for some time now; however, reading Stuck in the Goo transported me back to that painful time. You’ll hear it in my voice about midway through, when it obviously fills with emotion.
