What’s your story like?
Late one night I came home upset – my NYC flatmate had a crush on me and made my life intolerable. I arrived in the middle of Hurricane Gloria – my bangining on the door woke my parents. Mom & I started talking until 3:00 am. Dad slept.

The next morning over coffee he told me a story. “One day, your Mom & I were sitting here when a skunk and its baby came by the window. We both said how cute. The next day I found the baby skunk – dead. I never told your Mom. Some times we keep things from the ones we love because we think it’s going to hurt them. It winds up hurting us more.”

I am proud to share that story with as many as possible…
