Parenthood is all about learning to see the world through the eyes of a child. This is something I learned early on in my journey as a mother, and it is the basis for the short film, Eye of the Beholder (a collaborative project with Doug Urquhart of The Upthink Lab and composer Michael Wynne). I wrote all about it in How My Daughter Inspired a Film that Went “Viral.” But for today, here’s a quote to remind you that life is all about the small things and in gaining new perspective on the familiar.
Just a quick post to announce a few changes around here. Some of you are already signed up for The Adventures in Parenthood Project newsletter. To make things more simple for me and for my readers, I am going to be centralizing all my project, publications, and updates into one single newsletter.
I’m calling it “outside-in”, a name I think pays tribute both to my love for the outdoors and also my passion for the inner journey that is well worth exploring. In my newsletter, I’ll do a round-up of my latest posts on the web (from my blogs and others), magazine publications, and projects I’m working on, as well as point to links from around the web that are inspiring my work.
Keen to keep following my journey? Sign up for the outside-in newsletter.
Mother of two small children and wearer of many hats, including conservationist and environmental consultant, McKittrick is no stranger to the balance of parenthood, adventure, work and all the “other stuff” in life. And this woman takes on big adventures, such as long distance backpacking expeditions, including a few with not one, but two very small children in tow. Check out my review of her book, “Small Feet, Big Land: Adventure, Home and Family on the Edge of Alaska.”
