“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Parenting in the 21st century

I logged onto my email at 32,000 feet yesterday and saw that our daughter had sent me a religion-class essay she wanted edited. Captive and bored for a four-hour flight, I worked on the essay and sent it back to her. As I hit "send" I looked outside my window and saw that I was crossing directly over downtown Nashville (at 32,000 feet) and, because I'd recently emailed her as well, I knew that Carol, my wife, was in our downtown-Nashville condo right at that moment. "Hi, sweetie," I whispered, recognizing our tower by its rooftop pool.

Connected yet so very unconnected from my two girls.

An amazing manipulation of physics that Mr. Newton could never anticipate ...

Safe travels to everyone this Christmas season.
