DON'T GO FAR is a children's book I wrote in the late eighties, and never found a publisher for. (Familiar story) At the time, I still hoped that I would have kids someday, although I was really thinking about it from the kids' point of view and not the parents'.
Since losing my younger brother this year, this story means even more to me now. From the moment children are born, they begin leaving their parents, a little at a time. And as we go through life, others are leaving us too, though we don't know it as we walk along the same road together. But then, it's not really the same road; it's just that theirs has intersected with ours throughout our separate lives. So enjoy the trip while their road does meet yours, because we can never know where they part.
