MAYA LASSITER is a writer of fantasy novels, an unschooling mom, a yogini, a goat keeper, a yurt dweller, and an all-around cool person. Except when she's a boring ninny. Hopefully she won't post on those days.
How I would act if myself or the other person is terminal? This gives me a good dose of patience. I also imagine that I’m talking to the child as an adult, and remembering this moment with them. What do I want them to remember? How do I hope they’ll remember my interactions with them? Because we aren’t just talking to a child, we’re talking to an adult in a different phase of development. –Ren Allen
