This post is completely disconnected from the topic of Darien real estate. Being the author of this blog has given me a certain confidence in my writing.As a result, and on a lark,I submitted a freelance article to The New York Times regarding how todays parents tend to overprogram our children. and overuse the word “passion” to describe their activities.
I am proud to say that this past Sunday,November 14,the article was published in the Metropolitan section of the paper.I’m aware that many people have attempted to get a byline in the paper and somehow, I managed it on the first try. I think its a little like winning the lottery after buying only one ticket. Nevertheless, I accept it humbly as a little pixie dust that someone sprinkled on me. Hope you enjoy the article.
