And just one more

posted by David Kuo

I have, I think, just one more round of chemo left. When I go through my pill popping regimen tomorrow morning it will be the last time for this particular round of drugs. Twenty-three rounds, it seems, is enough. What […]

“I wish I could see the angels”

posted by David Kuo

Livvy is going through an “I’m scared” phase at night. She wants us to sleep in her bed and check on her all the time. As I write, her shades are up, a little nightlight is on, and she’s hugging […]

Obama’s very big night in the desert…

posted by David Kuo

Note – Most of my blogging now occurs at Culture11.com a new media company. My blog is here. John McCain had a good night at Rick Warren’s forum on faith and character and so on. Barack Obama had a better […]

Edwards

posted by David Kuo

I’m trying to find anger or bitterness or shock at all that John Edwards did and didn’t do and said he did and said he didn’t do. There is, of course, sadness – sadness for all those people who worked […]

The ripping pain of innocence

posted by David Kuo

Our young daughter is engaging the world and loving it. Now 3 and aware that only most of the universe revolves around her she is exploring the other creatures she runs across – particularly those her size. This means that […]

Male insults

posted by David Kuo

Several years ago, while attending an Atlanta Braves baseball game at Turner Field – their home park – my wife kept getting a quizzical look on her face. It only occurred when the Braves were at bat and usually during […]

The horse rescue plan

posted by David Kuo

A simple plan for helping America’s youth – make them all ride and take care of horses. The world would change. I spent the day with my two oldest daughter at a horse show in western Pennsylvania. Before my daughters […]

Hating on The Three Little Pigs

posted by David Kuo

The Three Little Pigs are directly responsible for the degradation of American creativity and general childhood guilt. For the past several weeks the Golden Books version of The Three Little Pigs has made it onto Livvy’s high demand book rotation. […]

The Christian sex challenge

posted by David Kuo

So, I found this via my friend Carlos. It is a “30-Day Sex Challenge” started by the folks at Relevant Church in Tampa, Florida. Here’s the gist of the challenge: People are not having enough sex. An epidemic of breakups […]

Sam, the potty and the scratching

posted by David Kuo

Every parent knows one of the simple truths of life is that there is no privacy. That is especially true in the bathroom. “What ‘cha doin Daddy???” is heard moments before the bathroom door is flung open and a little […]

Ridiculous Christmas

posted by David Kuo

We are beginning our ridiculous Christmas weekend. For the first time we’re actually doing Christmas in our own home. We typically fly or drive to our childhood homes and have wonderful times of celebration. Because we do that, however, we […]

Feisty daughter, proud Papa

posted by David Kuo

I’m not sure I should be as pleased by this as I am. But I am. One of my daughters is learning pre-algebra. She’s 12 and loquacious and isn’t a big fan of her math teacher. Yesterday, the teacher was […]

Scene of thanks giving

posted by David Kuo

Our long weekend of family thanksgiving is over. My older daughters are back at home with their mom. The babies are asleep. Kim and I are trying to get the house back in basic functioning order. Our sweet dog Sam […]

Dangerous daughters

posted by David Kuo

My fiendish older daughters showed this to me last night. I’m such a sucker for things like this. They knew that. I’ll have to ground them later. Right now I have to play some more. Helicopter Game

Parental guilt

posted by David Kuo

We are actively deceiving our two-year-old daughter and my guilt is getting the best of me. The area of deception centers around food – specifically on “ice cream.” Last night I heard her saying “green ice cream, I want green […]

Do genetics excuse everything?

posted by David Kuo

I’m reading a story in today’s NYT about kids being picky eaters: A week’s worth of dinners for young Fiona Jacobson looks like this: Noodles. Noodles. Noodles. Noodles. French fries. Noodles. On the seventh day, the 5-year-old from Forest Hills, […]

Thin place…not

posted by David Kuo

I would love to post this picture and wax nostalgic about how in the midst of really impressive kitchen mess (created, believe it or not, just since lunch today) I felt God’s presence and fell to the ground in holy […]

Classic childhood moment

posted by David Kuo

Time: 9am Date: Today Place: Bathroom I walk into our upstairs bathroom and find our two-year-old, Livvy, looking at our toiler saying, “Where is my flusher?” “Where did my flusher go?” Her arms are out at her side in bewilderment. […]

Appreciating pregnancy

posted by David Kuo

I think I am a pregnant woman. No, I think I appreciate what it is like to be a pregnant woman. Sort of. So I finished another round of chemo last week. For two and a couple days afterwards I […]

More Mitch

posted by David Kuo

Sometimes it is harder to pray for a person without seeing their face. Here is a picture of Mitch and his family… let’s keep praying that God keeps them whole. Go Mitch go.

Useless knowledge

posted by David Kuo

Was talking to my newly-minted junior high school daughter last night about life and school and changes and such. Out of nowhere came this: “I love middle school. I haven’t been asked to walk single file once. What a wasted […]

Observations from my period

posted by David Kuo

Forthwith, random observations from my period. Hannah Montana didn’t do it for me even though the premise of a pop star kid disguising herself as normal is cute and BIlly Ray Cyrus is affable. That I watched Hannah Montana says […]

My period

posted by David Kuo

Once every 28 days, for five days, I have my period. I haven’t really written much about it because, I suppose, I am not sure what to make of the whole thing. My period is different from and similar to […]

Little girl, big love

posted by David Kuo

We’ve been at the beach the past few days. With a newborn and a two-year-old that means we’ve mostly been at the house looking in the general direction of where we know the beach is located. Wonderfully we have managed […]

God is not a bat

posted by David Kuo

The scene: Sitting with my two oldest daughters (11 and 9) playing “Dogopoly” (think Monopoly for dogs where Boardwalk and Park Place are a St. Bernard and a Great Dane and where hotels are out but massive dog bones are […]

The lesson of forgiveness

posted by David Kuo

Four years ago, a little girl in Boston was shot, partially paralyzed, and sentenced to life in a wheelchair. Last year she entered a Boston courtroom and said to the man who shot her, “I forgive you.” It so moved […]

Making no sense of the bridge collapse

posted by David Kuo

The collapse makes no sense. It simply shouldn’t have happened. People driving home from work should not die because a bridge suddenly buckles. The engineers may well find an explanation, a technical explanation, for what occurred. That explanation will still […]

Baskin Robbins church

posted by David Kuo

I went to church yesterday even though I haven’t ever been on a Saturday before. It was a short service – 20 minutes or so. There was no singing and no sermon. And the service was held at noon outside […]

Back...
I'm back here at JWalking after a bit of time because I just want someplace to record thoughts from time to time. I doubt that many of the thoughts will be political - there are plenty upon plenty of people offering their opinions on everything political and I doubt that I have much to add that will

Learning to tell a story
For the last ten months or so I've been engaged in a completely different world - the world of screenwriting. It began as a writing project - probably the 21st Century version of a yen to write the great American novel - a shot at a screenplay. I knew that I knew nothing about the art but was inspir

Twenty-three rounds, it seems, is enough. What comes next? We'll go back to what we did after the surgery. We'll watch and measu
