“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” HENRY DAVID THOREAU, Walden
Growing up, this quote was perched on the dresser in my bedroom. Handwritten in black marker on a little piece of particle board that showed the wear and tear my childhood and adolescence inflicted on it, it has always been part of my consciousness–an ode to individuality as well as acceptance.
I am so proud to introduce you to my column on ADDitude.com, “Different Drummer,” a place where I write about negotiating life’s adventures with my son Edgar who was recently diagnosed with ADHD.
Please stop by and let me know what you think.
