The Long Way to Sarajevo

She pretended to shoot me, the woman in the front seat of the car. She turned, eyes blue and hair white, cupping her arms with an imaginary machine gun. Pfoo, she said, jerking her arms in recoil. Pfoo, pfoo. I had told her I was born in 1992, when the siege of Sarajevo began. She was bringing us to this city, the capital of Bosnia.

I shifted next to my partner, Kenzie, in the back seat, my beard dusty and clothes worn from two weeks traversing the mountains of the Balkan peninsula. We were walking a section of the Via Dinarica Trail, Europe’s newest long-distance hiking route stretching 800 miles from Slovenia to Albania. The woman’s violent mime was not surprising but articulated what bullet-chipped houses had whispered th...

The Best Way To Solve Your Child’s Behavior Problems

If you asked me a year ago what word best described my parenting, it might have been “rigid.” Being a preschool teacher for so many years had made me a little too good at setting limits and following through. It got to the point where every day with my 3-year-old son was a repeat cycle of tears and unnecessary power struggles. I found myself thinking that I couldn’t let go of one single thing because then, “He’d win.”

But one day it hit me… at what point did he and I stop being on the same team? At what point did I start controlling him instead of guiding him? Of course I should want him to “win.” I want him to win at solving problems. To win at loving others unconditionally. Most importantly, to win in our relationship.

Fast forward to now, and I’m viewing defiance and misbehavior in a whole new light.

DIY: Cool contemporary plant stand

planter and stand
This container is planted with a sun-loving combination of bromeliad, kalanchoe and false cypress ‘Sungold.”

Garden pots can be splendid on their own, but when elevated, they achieve rock star status in the garden or on the patio. Plus, the taller the pot, the greater the impact. But big pots are pricey. Building this wood plant stand helps give the illusion of a larger pot and also makes for a lighter weight set-up and an easier job of moving if needed. And depending on your plants, it can be moved indoors for the winter.

The instructions are for use with a plastic pot – 14” tall and round at its widest point – a common size and material at garden centers and other stores. The 2” cedar spindles (1 3/8” actual) used ...
