As an award-winning social activist and mentor in the Big Brother/Big Sister program, former journalist and documentary filmmaker, Aaron Kirk Douglas illuminates the emotional turmoil inherent in mentoring an at-risk youth. He relates how it pushed him to become more than just a weekend-toss-the-ball-around kind of mentor. In his relationship with Rico, a fatherless foster child he meets through Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Douglas must face the memories─and pain─of growing up gay in rural Oregon without the love and acceptance he so desperately craved from his own father. His journey leads him to forge a new kind of family—the kind you create for yourself.

EMMA, by Jane Austen, is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance. The novel was first published in December 1815. As in her other novels, Austen explores the concerns and difficulties of genteel women living in Georgian-Regency England; she also creates a lively comedy of manners among her characters.Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, “I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like.” In the first sentence she introduces the title character as “Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich.” Emma is spoiled, headstrong, and self-satisfied; she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities; she is blind to the dangers of meddling in other people’s lives; and her imagination and perceptions often lead her astray. The novel has been adapted for several films, many television programs, and a long list of stage plays.
Follow along with me as I fumble through the first few years of fatherhood in real time. A father to two young boys I’ve been documenting the transformations, the stumbles, the minor successes that resonate like world changing victories and the hysterical fails that remind me that children are literally made to survive our shortcomings. Hell, they can even thrive in the face of them.Before becoming a dad I had no idea how it would change me. I tended to think of it all as what I’d be losing. Sure, I was excited to meet my kids, but I was worried about a life choice that would alter every moment of the rest of my life. So when my first arrived and I fell in love with him, I knew it was time to strap in for a crazy ass ride. There are moments early on when it’s all so much that your walls come down and there’s beauty, unbelievable love and sheer terror all around at all times. I knew I had to write it out. I didn’t want to ever lose these moments to time and future priorities. So I did, I wrote it out. In personal essays documenting my changes, their changes and our changes. Some is funny as hell, some is heartbreakingly tender and some is sharply observant. All of it is written with candor and love. I hope you enjoy it and thank you for taking the time to be here, now.
