"And i forgot to mention it was funny. How you called me darren in the beginning because you know my husband's name. That's what threw me his photo credit on your head shot. I'm like who. Is this what i know. It's always confusing for people. Because they're like darren derian and i go. Yeah so obviously. Allegiance is available through local bookstores. online yep available and why don't you give us the name of the other collection of writings. They came out around the same time. Yeah so. I also have a collection of poems. It's a book it's called other small histories and it follows the metro lineal line from my great grandmother who is basically a slave in the family. But also you know the woman who was supposed to be with my grandfather and give children all the way down to close my grandfather's three wives which is another story and he was a christian man. So that's particularly interesting all the way down to my daughter and that actually won the poetry society of america checkbook fellowship That patricia smith. Who's a wonderful poet judged and that's available through their website. That's only they do a limited run of five hundred so that's at the poetry society In new york through their website. And so that's the other they. It's interesting because they both came out around the same month like the same month even they were on completely different publication. Pat's so you never know how these things go well. It sure looks to me from where i sit that year in your lane. Your your Relabel to follow your heart and to use your gifts and had the satisfaction of knowing that you're making a difference like you're making people think and feel things and and connect even maybe wanna revisit. The relationships with some of our siblings feeling people in their fifties lot of times. That's kind of supposed to be the sweet spot. It really seems like you're there. Yeah i definitely feel like being great. I mean i will say that i turned fifty this year. I will say that there is. There is the health stuff and i think that whole thing about you know youth is wasted on. The young is totally true. You never feel it when you're in it because you're just like live and large but when you're older you're like okay. Yeah i remember that. And i'm not getting back to that. I i get that but there are so many things i think in terms of reflection and i think there are so many of the pandemic has taught us. Anything is is that this is really a great time to do some inner work but also to you know check him with some of your relationships and see where you are with them and and also you know maybe try to get your own stories down. I mean that's my thing is is encouraging people to find ways till the story and the micro a memoir the micro essay format is a great way to do it without you know committing a ton of time you can just kind of dipoto in and be like okay like this is going and go from there. Well i'm gonna personally thank you for introducing me to that format because i wasn't aware of it in the way you described it in both. It's kind of benefits and advantages. I can attest to it. I really think that. I felt accomplished moving through your book in the way in the time that i did and at the same time i felt like back to our topic thing i felt like you had all these small dishes that i got to save her versus one big meal and i really enjoyed that great. Thank you so much. Can i really appreciate i love. How thoughtfully you read the book. I really do appreciate the well. I tell all the authors. That's one of my unbreakable rules. I have to read the book before you know you come on because otherwise i'm just kind of faking it and and i don't think it does the author any justice and i like to read writings a little too slow process for me. That's why stopped blocking. That's doing podcasting. But i definitely appreciate good writing because it is such a different engagement than other things that i do and it really makes me kind of sit and not do. You can't be on your phone and watching screen right. No you're you're in this book so thank you for writing this. Thank you for being a writer. And i'm excited that you're also a professor that you get to instruct people how to do this and you're living on know on the big island of hawaii so i can get on ya. Yeah no that's pretty good i will. I will admit that we've been here for almost twenty two years coming up in twenty two years and we all my kids born and raised here and we're just so grateful so we love it so yeah well thank you again for coming on. I look forward to seeing what else you produce and listeners. I just really run encourage you to go out and get this book. It's not going to take you a long time. But you spend a long time.

"I think yeah no. Sometimes the old underwear is a little tight assize or two two small with everything that's happening. I've gained a little weight. So i bought new underwear online. When they arrived tried them on they were comfortable. I wash them in boston more. But this morning. I rose from my bed and made the mistake of checking my phone. I read the news i read. Some e mails one. I went to get dressed. I could only around for my old underwear even holding it in my hand felt like a relief that some things never change that something. Stay the same. What i pulled them on. It didn't matter that they were tight. Cutting into my soft belly. They were familiar. I still remembered. So you obviously didn't mentioned the actual word pandemic in there. And i think in a way because you didn't it's gonna kind of give some longer legs to this particular chapter because you're just talking about change and how life is different and how some things even though they're not one hundred percent comfortable. The familiarity of them is. What's comfortable if i. If i i think that's what you're talking about. Yeah you know. I think The book even though it's a very slim volume you just divide the three parts. Which is the first part of my childhood. The second part is sort of my adult life. My married life. The third part is really kind of like where i am. Now you know and there are some other pieces that that reference the pandemic. So i think that helps anchor the reader in time. If they're reading the whole thing but you know it really it really does come back to this idea of how things can be overwhelming and i think also as we get older just that there is a desire for things that are both familiar but also comfortable and also comforting that. There's a comfort that we're looking for and we'll take it. We draw sometimes shiny new. You know isn't always best and even sometimes something that does the job and yeah it's comfortable. Yeah it's a good price still is what we need. You know when push comes to shove. I think that there were so many moments during the pandemic and selling for myself. You know as i'm aging. No because i'm in my fifties now and it seems like oh it's like the minute the car warranty runs out. You start to have all these problems. I feel like the minute. I cross over fifty so awesome things happen but also some other things are starting to break down so you know it's been really interesting so anyways it's just You know. I think that piece is really written from a place of just that desire desire for what feels almost safe. You know to a certain extent. Well it's reliable. Yeah right and there's something to be said for you. Don't think twice definitely. Yep you know this this is one. The instructions don't route. Do you wonder how this actually works. It's like no this. Yeah what are you working on writing wise now well. I'm actually back on another novel. So i do you know write Poetry and some micro essays. Here and there when i feel like i can't get the time i need to work on my novel. I am the kind of novelist that needs a huge chunk of time. And that's been the. I think the hardest thing for me. That pandemic is that you know. My husband was joking. He goes well. This should easy for you. Because you're you're always home anyways that i go. Yeah but now all you guys. And so i have three kids you know and my daughter is in college but she they close everything down. Last year she came home. And we're in a smaller house. And i know this has after she left and so we had to really kind of juggle and i had my youngest in our master bedroom with us because this where we had the most room for another bed. And you know my desk is my you know. I don't have a steady anymore. Our old house. We was a lot larger and we had a steady but you know we downsize. And so you know. I have a corner in our bedroom which i'm trying to do all of my work and so my novel has really even though i you know. I've published five hundred dollars with penguin random house. And i kind of know my way around. It has been really really difficult. Has been really difficult to have that space in that quiet. Just play in the way that i do. So that's what i'm working on and and it's actually funny because in a lot of ways. This is the book that i wrote when i first started a my literary career I'd actually gotten cold. Feet is actually in san francisco. The time i got an agent. I wrote the novel i got an agent. Got cold feet is probably the most personal thing i'd written and i put it away and it went back to work and i didn't write for five more years and then in five years i wrote a book that sold and it went from there so it's interesting to write the book that i'm reading now and seeing how different it is and at the same time so similar so i kind of feel like if i can get this done. I will have kind of gone full circle. I don't think it'll be the end of my writing but it will mean something already means something to me so we'll see. What is your presence on social media. How can people track you. Follow you everything you know. It's always great to go to my website. i I haven't been super engaged. They're only because i've been busy with so many things going on but i am there I make the occasional appearance on facebook and clubhouse and instagram. But i really actually keep a pretty low profile social media wise. I do you know do post every now and then. There's exciting news and what i want to say. Hello but i find that it's too much of a rabbit hole for me especially when i'm trying to create so i limit my yeah my exposure to that but my websites always a great place in. I've got a contact form on there so anybody wants to reach out. That's always the best place to start. So dairy shuji dot com. It's just darian g. dot com. Okay no gasoline..

"I think this kind of work and these kind of stories are so important right. So it's like from this conversation but from these stories you then even though you're like wow i. I enjoyed them. Thank you but now you are turning the lens back to yourself and being like this makes me have some longing or some some curiosity or desire for something else for me i think that's what memoir and personal can do for other people. It's not just for ourselves. We say we always right for ourselves. I but you know it's when you that's you know that's a part about. I think developing some craft around it so that it can be something accessible to everyone even people who are outside of your outside of your your household in this case in the time that we have left on trying to make the decision between the old underwear and the now the waddell. And i'll let you choose. Well you know what was really interesting. I mean one of the great things that are being a small publisher is that we don't have these long lead times that goto publication for my novels they're almost. It's a standard eighteen months right from the time day. Receive your edited manuscript. So that's not the time that they give you comments back. That's the time that they receive it and now it's ready to go into the production queue because they need time for a marketing and sales and so it's actually in your favor as an author that they do all that but it just extends eighteen months normally. When i read a novel by the time i go on tour for it. People say things. And i'll be like i completely forgot about that but when you're a small press it can go really fast. I finished writing this basically last summer and then it was out in october. So one thing. That was great about that. Was i was able to include these pieces that were that were about the pandemic and about our family and the pandemic and that was something that was really. I think exciting for me. That i could have a book that really reflected sorta this really difficult on an enlightening time that we went through. I'll do some days. I just wanna wear old underwear. Because i think that kind of brings us into that moment of the pandemic finding that in your book where that was yeah. I was laughing when you said that. Because i don't think i've actually ever read this out so here we go okay some days. I just wanna wear old underwear. I don't mean underwear that is dirty or it's been sitting on top of the hamper waiting. Its turn in the laundry. I mean underwear with shot elastic. The cotton worn thin small rips or tears. The ones shoved in the back of the door that.

"A portrait of two families in the making our bodies angled toward the camera as if this promised land will stop time for moving forward. The frame of towering palm trees and perfect blue skies evidence a holiday from life not life itself. My brother and his wife will divorce within a year a decade later. He and i will no longer speak. Other bodies will assume the position in these chairs. Other bodies will believe this paradise. I think this was the first team. Call these chapters this. This is the first portion of this book that i really felt like you. Hit me blindsided. Like i'm just kind of making my way through the first half of this very brief essay and and then the second half just takes me places so dark in and so dreary that i just not well. That's not good but you got reacting to it. Yeah yeah well you know what's interesting so my brother and i have been estranged for twenty years you know like i said we never lived under the same roof. After we won't both entered school. He was younger than me. He was two and a half years younger that may so he went to boarding when he was in eighth grade. Which is really young. You know it's really young and we're not. We're not in europe or england where you know it's actually part of the community. There's a lot of people who go to boarding school super yacht. You know in america. We it usually happens in high school so he went really young and middle school. And i think that was really hard on him. I didn't really really realize that. But what happened was when i wrote this book. He and i were still a strange. Like i said we were strange for about twenty years of which the last ten we spoke almost not at all like we didn't communicate at all. I would maybe hear something through my mother or through my father but he and i were not in communication for a number of reasons that I won't get into. I do think that it isn't really important with a memoir. Is that you get to make the decision about what to share. What share But i also felt like it was important for me to be really honest with myself and with my writing that this was something that was a real loss for me this relationship and at the same time i had asked myself. What kind of relationship do we really have. I mean we separated when we were both really young and we spent one of our childhood fighting. How well do we really know each other. The funny thing is this book came out. was published in october of twenty. Twenty is that right yes. Twenty twenty one. The pandemic has just me and my mind and a month before this book came out. My brother reached out to me and he didn't know about this book. He was having some things that were going on for him and he felt like he wanted to connect and to make a long story short. so well So i said well just so you. So we reconnected. It was great very emotional. And then i said just you know by the way i have a book coming out and you're kind of in it. I mean like nothing. You know i but you're in it and it talks about our relationship and our strange because there are a few pieces that talk about our estrangement in the spoke as you as you know and i sent it to him and he sent him the proof and he called me back and he was really really emotional. My brother is not somebody who's zuber emotional or cry like that. he was just. It was really beautiful. And he's just like. I love this and i feel like you're really honest and new captured my childhood two and since then he and i talk almost every day. Whoa yeah we talk almost every day. We send it to the care packages. I just got one from him. we have gotten really really close and so now it's been twenty twenty one so you know we are coming up on like nine months of something that i honestly thought that i. I was probably gonna die without us ever getting through this. I'm and he thought the same thing too so it was. It was almost like magic this folk. I was kind of joking with my husband. I said well you know nothing ever happens with this book. Even though he didn't know about this book could no. It hasn't really gone how it was. It was such a quick print run It was just like sometimes when you write things down. They have a way of showing up in the world. They've actually experienced this with a few of my novels. I'm always really careful. What are what. I write about but it was. It was interesting because even in this book i didn't express a desire that we reconnect. I express my own longing and my now except for the fact that we probably wouldn't reconnect so it has been a huge huge gift. I mean it was definitely the highlight of my twenty twenty Which it being a pandemic you're saying there's so many things happening but yeah so that's the part that that doesn't people don't realize is that actually we were really. Yeah we have. We've had to develop a relationship because we have to. I guess get to know each other as adults. It's been a really long time. And like i said we didn't have as much time When we were growing up and then we had a few years and then we didn't you know when he visited us in hawaii That was a time in which we were having a really good relationship and then a few years later just everything fell apart and didn't get fixed for like i said almost twenty years so and i can't help but thinking during that The buddhist lessons that you learned in redoing your relationship with your mother of really stripping desire an expectation out whether or not that had a buddhist motivation between you and your brother it sounds like this desert decade of time or twenty years. It allowed you the last nine months to kind of reconnect free of expectation and desire. If yes right. I mean it's really. My brother went and visited my mom and studied with her as well and is also doing. I mean he was kind of doing it a little bit over the years but now he's kind of cute jumped in and said oh. I see what this is about in terms of understanding like okay. This is where i am with it. You know the whole time. My brother and i were estranged there wasn't just like oh it's his fault or it's my fault but i was always. I was always trying to do the work actually buddhist work of trying to understand my own place with it right in trying to understand okay. This is where. I had some eric about this and this is where i was expecting that right and i had a lot of ideas about our our relationship and i when we didn't have it anymore. I had a question. Where do they get theirs. Ideas from are those actually true. Had to question my own thinking about it so it was really powerful. And you know we've worked really hard. We had one or two uncomfortable moments and we were able to talk about it in a way that was really Again was really terrific and i. i don't think quite honestly if my mother had become a buddhist. I mean now she. She thinks all of us my father my brother. Thank you for letting me become a food. And that's kind of a double edged sword. Associate like thank you for making my life so crazy that i had to become a buddhist but also because we support her And we've actually made it. My father also read sutra. I mean it's it's an the three of us would not consider ourselves buddhist. I don't think but but we've all been touched by this basically become a family affair in some ways So you know it just shows how we're all really interconnected even if even if we're not always aware of it you know something's always kind of cooking and that's the lesson that came from me with this whole experience. I'm also thinking of your risk your reaction to win your kids. Will your your supposed to do this because moms do this right. And and so in some ways. You're doing that. You and your brother were doing it to each other. Yeah you're my sibling. And so we get a lot. Yeah we should get along or you should take my side or this how it is and and then we had a question that we had really asked this really difficult. Essential question which i think if people were to regularly apply this to their lives. If you really hard it's say do i really know. This person are really know the sibling and not even so much. Do i like them or not. I mean but do. I really even know them and do. I actually accept them for who they are. And do i set my own part. And how i might have some bias or some expectation or some arrogance about certain things. I mean. it's really. You know we take family for granted but we also accept a lot of stuff for better for worse and when we really start to inquire about it it it. It's both difficult but also completely eye k. I wasn't planning on this. But now i'm price. I'm thinking i have to do all this work now with my two surviving simply a. i. Mind starts drifting into these places like wow what what about the last couple conversations we had you know how many biz reloaded. But you know. That's exactly why..

"I mean tell you honestly i mean she's not somebody who just like it's not like seventy who goes to church on. Sundays tries to be a good person. She actually lives full-time. In a buddhist community she translate sutra and does work relate to suture twenty four hours a day. She's not sleeping. This is what she's doing. And i think that i think it's i think. We have honestly to mexico expectation in relationships. I think that you could. I mean there. Plenty of buddhists right who are in families and to who Figure out how they're going to balance the two. But i think when you if you actually read any of the tax the buddhist texts you realize. Wow this is going to be really tricky. If you're in a family because unless your family's also boost because of the fact that i did have my son say to me one time when he was my youngest one to me moms are supposed to do x. An i just because of my mother. I actually was like. Wow i really want us to have some inquiry around statement because where you getting that from man is that really true and then what does that mean. If i don't do that. I mean all of these. Things are things we take for granted and then hold other people too but actually i think they're really worth looking at and asking yourself. What are the stories that i'm telling myself. What am i putting other people and are these really true in. Say something about your dad i. I was also bothered that when you dropped in. You know to live with him. I was thinking like you. Okay yeah you're a grown ass woman you're making a raving you up but we've been apart for how long your way boarding school in the country that i've made my second home. Of course. I want you to stay with me. What was going on with your dad. Well you know honestly. I think a lot of it was because we did our family was. I mean i would say that as a family unit. We fractured when my brother. And i went to boarding school meant we basically split at that point And so i think to have me come back in and also you know. My father was born in china you know. He's he has a lot. He's been to the wars all that sort of thing. He has a certain kind of thinking. And you know. I think when i was ready to be parented and i could actually say it. Of course i was in my twenties. He was like. I thought we were done with us. Like not in a mean way. But i think he just wasn't really prepared to do it and he didn't know how i think that was actually the biggest challenge with my father. I don't think he's actually ever been a quote unquote parent in the way. That i might have wanted him to parent and then you know in the there rare again with this expedition. What is apparent supposed to do you know. I do wanna footnote that in writing. These essays is trying to very authentic to where i was emotionally in that omen. And what was the truth for me but actually My parents right now. They're still legally married and they're actually like best friends. They support each other very deeply when my father had some heart surgery. My mother flew out He visits her regularly. You know there's a day still file joint tax returns. They shared bank accounts. They are like two people who deeply respect and trust each other which is not how their marriage was there actual marriage when they actually living together and so they do live separately but a are very engaged. I think in a way that feels much more true authentic. And then i'll share some more about the family to both of them have read this I didn't ask permission. But i did say did give them the heads up. My mother is the one who is actually been extremely generous with me and telling me all of these stories and being honest about her own experience. I mean she could've skipped over. That i mean looks like enough time has passed and ionized visiting her. We obviously have a relationship. She didn't have to go backwards but she did. You know and that gave us something else to talk about so you know. I am actually very pleased with the way my connection is with both of my parents and i'll talk about my brother later Because it feels actually really clear and really open and really real i think And my husband comments this all this all the time. He's from a very close knit family but they don't talk about things in the same way. My family talks about things now. Not from but now so well. This is already been so rich. Unthinking we can't possibly cover all the chapters. su torino. but i do wanna still dip into a few that i think kind of give us the knicks conversational touch point. The photograph one is a great example. Of what i now understand to be. This micro essay ended also gets a little bit into your brother. So would you please read that okay. I had three Just a survey. Prophesy had three really short i think these are maybe not even one hundred fifty words. Each that are photographed. The photograph is not in the book and the idea is that you're using the photograph to paint this picture. But you're not letting the reader us the picture as as a reference point. You're using the word so this one is called photograph poolside selfie at the four seasons who while ally the four of us seated in a row my brother me my sister-in-law my husband.

"I was defiant. How could he kick me out. I was his daughter. It didn't matter that i was a professional woman in her mid twenties. Who made her own money and could now afford a place of her own. That wasn't the point except it was the point. I was trying to throw myself back into the nest. I didn't know that then and could only feel the raw hurt of being told that i needed to go. I hadn't been ready to leave. When i was fifteen and i was trying to reclaim those lost years with my parents but it was too late. I moved out my father. And i assume the relationship of two adults who lived in the same city. But we're too busy to see each other one day. I walked into the lobby of the beijing hotel to meet a friend for brunch. There was my father sitting in a chair in the lobby and reading the newspaper. We startled when we saw each other is if we were the last person we ever expected to see. Then i was overcome with what i can only describe as elation enjoy of relief at seeing this man who was my father. Daddy i said by voice broke. You'd think it had been years rather than weeks. Since i had last seen him. I gave him a long hug. Show e he said calling me by chinese nickname. He smelled as i remembered. His skin is close. The solidness of my father hadn't changed my eyes filled with tears. He hated tears. Made him uncomfortable. So after a few seconds. I step back. We both have placed to be a small distance between us. It made it easier to say goodbye. Thank you for reading that. Obviously this exceeded the micro. Say a three hundred word framing. What was the thinking behind exceeding that in this case. I'm glad you did. Because there's so much i'll get to in asking you about your relationship with your parents but just more the writing technical aspect of it. What was it that kind of compelled you to make this particular chapter longer. Well since i had written this entire collection as sort of a teaching text for the micro memoir and hybrid publishing program that i had developed. I wanted writers to see that sometimes. I think we talked about this earlier. Sometimes a story just need a little bit more room now. Could i have done this in three hundred words. I actually probably could have found a way. But i wasn't willing to lose what i felt. Were some elements. And i think that's the right decision but again you know some stories really lend themselves to a certain form so i knew this form is actually. This was actually a slightly longer essay night. Cut it back And so this collection allegiance is really a mix of both those short forms and slightly longer forms. But you know it was also showing. Sometimes you just honor the story in the space that maybe it needs and again. I'm very appreciative that you made that decision. Talk to us a little bit about your mom. From the time you begin to describe her as kind of devout christian persons so people didn't hear that part and then you inner fifties becomes like a buddhist nun and i still can't get over being a parent myself. Just how frank shu starkly franks. Un's is like you guys are too much trouble. I you needed to get out of my life. What kind of person do you understand her to be. And we're using fis that she took this huge turn. Well my both of my parents so we both my parents come from christian households You know there's a lot of work in the ministry with the ymca. They were very Active practicing christians both my mother and father however were sort of the black sheep of their families. So you know both Seekers in their own way both clear my father at the time. I think a little bit more than my mother. My mother now. Of course this way but having a i think a deep understanding a curiosity about themselves and who they were in the world so my mother we we went to trick for lewa. I was younger. But i think it was really kind of going through the motions. This this is what we do. This is how we were raised and both of my parents decided. I think for themselves at one point that that wasn't a true thing for them and my mother was always. I think searching spiritually. She's to read shirley maclaine books you know. She did other kinds of refutes very untraditional. Both my parents were actually not typical. Abc parents. i mean. You don't always see it on the off the page. Because i didn't get into all of those stories but my parents were very different from most immigrant china's american parents. Who were you know well educated. My father's Has his phd and my mother has masters At that came to america from taiwan But we're originally born in china. They just really had became very clear. Strong independent thinkers and buck against the norm. So when my mother so she didn't tell me of course. When i went off to boarding school she couldn't take care of me. She told me this. When i was in my fifteen and i was like okay. Thank you for sharing. But at that point you know. She'd been a buddhist for a while. And i really learned to understand. I guess Really how much that had had changed her becoming a buddhist. And it's changed me to you. Know we go regularly to visit her and I would not call myself a buddhist but I you know. We have sutras that. I read and i understand very much where she's coming from but i you know what i. I don't think i have this in the book. But actually right around the time that she was converting my brother was about to get married and she told me so. I was in my twenties or so i mean. I'm an older older woman at this point but still she told me i am no longer your mother and i just lost it because i didn't lose it in front of her but i was kind of like you know at all. Children are so grateful so of course part of me says like were you ever because obviously i had an ideal what mother was and what what they weren't and somehow in my eyes it wasn't lining up and i think she knew this too which is why it was always a problem because she was trying to live on a certain expectation and buddhism in a she's mahayana buddhist So buddhist not zander to baton. You know it's really about breaking those expectations those bonds in those labels right because whenever you have an expectation then you're going to be disappointed in life is suffering. And and she was right. You know when she did that We basically start from scratch. I could not say but you're supposed to do this or you're supposed to do that. I had to say this is my mother You know. I still referred to her as my mother. She had a buddhist name And it was. It was really. It actually really taught me a lot about expectation and how we actually unfairly project so much on another person so our relationship now is very close. But i also have learned not to take any it for for granted quote just because she is my mother and there's and when she started to do more things for both myself and my brother and then you know our kids i realized actually how precious it was and how grateful i was quite honestly for anything because i thought she was going to give us anything at all. And that's actually where you want to start. I mean that's actually the beginner's mind right the minute you go into a relationship with expectation. You're in trouble because the other person will almost certainly disappoint. Because it's something that you've got your baggage about right. You're supposed to take out the trash or you're supposed to you know help me do all the gardening or you're supposed to the kids dinner and whatever those old thinkings are can get in the way of a lot of relationship. So she Is part for buddhist practice. I would say she severed the labels and reset her relationship with with both my brother and me to sort of ground zero. But she didn't exclude us. We just had to start from scratch so now now she's actually more like a grandmother added that i would have thought she'd become but also because she's become more comfortable and more clear about where she is a buddhist. She's a full time practicing buddhist still. Yeah i mean Pardon me has wonder. Could she have pursued. This avenue spirituality without leaving everything behind. I don't think so..

"And so i would like you to start with one of the longer versions it. It goes beyond your three hundred words. But i i want us to start with this. One is called leaving because it tells so much of your own family story. That i think will help contextualize the rest of what you're going to be sharing with the listeners. Okay leaving my brother. And i are having tea in the basement of the communal buddhist house where she has lived for the past thirty years. She converted to buddhism in her fifty s ten or so years after my brother and i boarded planes for separate boarding schools on the east coast. I wanna thank you. She says for going away. There is a pickle at the back of my neck. The top the topic of boarding school has always been one. We've never really discussed. I keep my voice. Even what do you mean. She gives a tired smile. Her gray hair cut short the skin on her face pale soft. She's in her early eighties. In the smile. I see distance discomfort guilt relief. I couldn't handle your brother. She tells me. I needed space. I needed you to go. Okay i say but of course it's not okay. She needed us to go. It wasn't about setting us up for life college prep more opportunities etc etc. Your father was having an affair. She says she stops and corrects herself. Size maybe it wasn't an affair. Maybe they were. Just friends. And i was jealous. Things had not been going well for a while. I'd been on a trip to taiwan. Visit relatives the minute. I walk through the door. You told me what happened. She had been in our apartment. You are angry. You wanted me to know this. I do not remember this. I travel back the thirty some years to my teenage self. My father his business trips my mother's loneliness story and memory run together. It's hard to remember what was real. It was easier for me when the two of you left. She says you were so demanding. Always fighting an argumentative. It was too much for me to do alone. Taking care of you and your brother. How might this have played out in an alternate universe. Could we have stayed. would we have stayed. Could we have promised to be better. Children less than emotional drain on our mother staying out of the business of their marriage. What kind of family might we have. We become what kind of person might. I have turned out to be the decision to semi to an all girls boarding school in connecticut. Started with the possibility we've been living as patriots in hong kong for my father's job at an oil company. There is talk about moving to a part of mainland china where no english speaking school existed. My brother and i were of chinese descent but we did not speak chinese fluently. We were abc's american born. Chinese also known as bananas white on the inside yellow on the outside four years onto our expatriate enclave did little to build any new language skills. We could swear and could order food. That was it every catalog featured the same leafy. Campus leggy brunettes carrying armfuls of books. Tow head jocks brandishing. Lacrosse sticks the occasional asian student with his cello between her legs or leaning over a microscope. The teachers wore cement colored quarter pants. Thick cabled sweaters wire rimmed glasses their faces channel focus and commitment as they made a grand gesture toward their students. I knew i would never fit in. I had nothing in common with these kids who were smart or privileged or talented. I wasn't even there. And already i felt like a fraud. Then the news came. We would not have to move to china after all. My father would commute but things progress as if nothing had changed. My brother and i sat for the psat flew to the east coast tour. Campuses applied to a bunch of schools. Got into a few there was no. Why are we still going or can we stay as if that had been a possibility. I wasn't aware of it instead. We'd dutifully said goodbye to our parents and friends packed our bags and left at the airport. My brother and i went our separate ways him to massachusetts and me to connecticut. We would never live under the same roof again in two thousand eleven. Psychotherapist joy chevron published an article in the british journal of psychotherapy and introduced the term boarding school syndrome. It will use primarily to identify lasting psychological problems in adults who were sent away to boarding school at a young age usually during elementary middle school. I was a sophomore in high school in nineteen hundred four when i went to connecticut. Did this syndrome apply to me. After boarding school. I went to college during my sophomore spring. I moved back to houston and transferred to a local university. My mother had repatriated. While my father continued to work overseas. i was sleeping in the room of my childhood. The same pink flowers bedspread the same kid sized white laminate desk at the time. I told myself it was for practical reasons. Why spend money on rent. When i could live at home. I told myself the same thing. When i went to work overseas with an international tax firm the chairman of china practice said he would hire me but i wouldn't have benefits like housing no problem. I said because. I had a place to stay. My father was living in beijing. His apartment on the same street as our office. I would stay with him. In both cases my parents hadn't agreed to let me stay with them. It was more like they didn't say no. And before they could gather their thoughts i was unpacked my mother tolerated longer than my father. After a year he told me i had to leave..

"It has all of our memories all of our moments. It knows exactly where we are at any point in time emotionally with these moments so when you tell yourself as a writer. This is the container that we are working with. We have three hundred words. We're going to write a draft in ten minutes or fifteen minutes. Or whatever. What i call a container you want to use for the for the writing. Your brain actually organizes a self around that to help you meet that and know. Of course everything takes practice so me doing it. Now is a lot different than when i was first starting out. But it's actually not as hard as people think it's just a thing where you want to dive in and i've had students who've written much longer pieces in than during revision. I helped them. Recast it in different ways. Sometimes it's poetry sometimes short forms and they almost always loved the short form better because they understand that they're they're getting to the emotional heart of a peace and they're finding what maybe that lyric. I dunno for lack of a better word. Vibration of that piece might be an once. You find it. You're like that's it. You just don't need more but a lot of it. Is you have to tell yourself as your writers mind. This is how we're doing it and you know to go back to what you had mentioned earlier about the filmmaker who had this three minute vignettes that readers if they what they are going to be experiencing are also then prepared. They're prepared for that trajectory where we have a different trajectory and watch tv series versus when we watch a movie so a lot of it is just preparing the reader for. That's what this is and then like our minds their minds realign say okay. So i'm gonna be done in five minutes when i read this all done in ten minutes. But what i find is that if depending on the peace readers will also linger you know the linger over these pieces. A little more than say they might a longer chapter of a book because a book is assigned to keep you reading to keep moving forward and whereas these smaller micro essays are designed to kind of sit with you sort of like a mint that slowly dissolving in your mouth. You know it just it stays with you for a little while so you get to find yourself in it. I like to use the word accessible. It feels very accessible to me. So it's less for me about you know people's time You know time attention span or available time much as trying to meet the reader where they are in a really authentic place and you get their super super fast will. The other comparison comes to mind. During and is i don't know about on the big island but here in southern california a lot of times people pick a restaurant because of the size of the portions like wow look how much food they give you right and isn't well was it good and then every once in a while like we got to this kind of japanese tapas sort of the very exquisitely presented tiny little plates right. And so if if you have that mindset that quantity is everything you're looking at this and like what but pretty quickly you catch on it. It's just like oh i. I just need to save her. The presentation in its tiny this. It's ended of itself. And then i'm taking my time eating it because there's only so much and then there's a pause before the next one's gonna come and so i start to. I think get what the chef was intending. Why texture and this flavor was included with that. So that's kind of what i'm getting as you're describing these micro essays is like oh it's a full meal but you approach it with a different mentality that accurate. I love that. I love that and you know i should say that. I am absolutely atop kind of fan. This idea that you get to try a lot of small bites if you will you find the thing that really resonates with you. But i love what you said. I should quote you on that. I think that's a wonderful thing. But you know i mean i also spent quite a few years in the south so i am a fan of the buffet. All you can eat buffet but i think that goes back to the idea right that that you get to find as a reader you might. If you're looking at a collection of micro essays like this you know you get to find a store you get to find an essay that you really really love and you're not going to have to put down the whole book or read through a whole book and be like is for me. It's not for me. And of course this is not really meant to compare a memoir full inc memoir against a collection of what i call micro memoirs you know. They're they're different forms and they have different intentions right so like you said if you go into a restaurant you kind of know what you're looking for what you're going to experience so i think people are going to be the same way with with these stories or these books so i got one more question for you before i actually. Have you read some of these chapters. Because i think that That's the best way for listening to really get what you've done here but as a storyteller myself one of the things that i've had to make peace with is that we all are the heroes in our own telling of the story so when you write a memoir or if i even talking to my siblings about some incident that we all experienced my natural tendency. Their natural tennessee is to tell it in a version. Were there the hero right. And i wonder. Did you. struggle with that at all or make peace with like. Oh if you if this brother that you haven't talked to in a while or anyone else who experienced the same family is gonna take issue right and go well. I don't remember it that way or while you come out smelling like a rose and i've just had to make peace with it. It's just like i. I think. I need to admit it that we all have this. Subjective memory if you will and that doesn't mean it's totally comprehensive and covers all the bases but it's how i remember it exactly. I think i think that's really what it is. I mean when we're talking about memoir or even personal essay right. We're talking about the writers perspective. The riders emotional truth. That's how i would sort of distill. It writes really about the emotional truth for the person who's writing the piece which means that if you're talking about let's say a family reunion. Everybody at the family reunion is gonna have a different take about what happened. And that's okay. You know as as the saying goes everybody else can write their own memoirs. But i do think that you know. It depends really with y. You're while you're writing and no intention feel like such an important part of the writer's journey especially if you plan on sharing your work with the world. And and i do i do. I hope that. I'm careful in In my decisions of what. I choose to write about what i don't just write about. I don't really like the censor myself. I don't let my students censor themselves. I say until you get to the point where you're publishing it. You don't want to start self censoring before you've you've been written down a single word. Which a lot of people to right. They don't want to write it because they're so scared. Get out in the world. And then i'll make them look better and make them look good as you said make everyone else look bad And i always tell people you the story first and then you see what you have because you may be surprised by what. The story is really about right. It's rarely about us just trying to make ourselves look good. It's usually about as chind understands something about ourself or another person or our place in the world or something worked out or didn't work out and you know that's why also with memoir or any kind of personal peace in general takes a little bit of time a little bit of space before you can actually write about that moment well because you need a certain amount of perspective so if it's too hot or too personal or still you know. Got a lot of revenge kind of fantasies in there. The piece is not gonna work the gonna going to see that. But i think what we notice with every memoir that has done well in the world that people have said. Wow that's the spin. I loved that it's not just because they're relating to the authors journey but because they're seeing their own journey somehow in there it's reliable. Maybe yeah maybe you didn't climb a mountain but you know what loss feels like. You know longing feels like and so a writers job if this if you want to share your work with the world is to understand how from a craft level to do that and to do that as authentically as possible. Wonderful while are you ready to read some of your work shore. I've asked darren theresa's specific chapters because they almost for the reasons you just said they. They really spoke to me..

"We are going to be talking with an author today. And i just finished. Her book is called allegiance. And let me tell you a little bit about it. Says the evidence of my life is everywhere. what does it mean to be chinese-american. How we reflected in the people we love in us in them. What obligation do we have to those who share our blood. And how does the woman claimed her life as iran in vivid and evocative flashes of pros dairy and shuji dissects her beliefs and navigates that complexity of family dynamics in search of her identity. She's the author of five novels published by penguin random house that had been translated into eleven languages. She won the twenty nine thousand nine poetry society. America's checkbook fellowship award for other small histories and the twenty fifteen hawaii book. Publishers got paula. Pocono award of excellence for writing. The hawaii memoir. I was going to stumble on that. She is the recipient of a sustainable arts foundation grant and a vermont studio center fellowship. She holds a b from rice university and a message of fine arts from near writing workshop at pacific lutheran university and she lives with her family on the big island of hawaii. Big aloha to darren. Darren welcome hi. Thank you for having me. Well in honor of you being a big island resident. I'm wearing my big island. Aloha shirt and i'm drinking my guava nectar. So i'm really in the mood here to talk to you. Great tell us a little bit about how you came to write this. It's a memoir and it's it's really not poetry its pros but it's poetic so please tell us how this came to be. I guess i'll start with what i actually how i actually look at. The collection of essays actually considered a collection of micro essays meeting that a lot of the pieces. Not all of them. There are some longer form pieces in here but a lot of them are three hundred words or less and the idea was that i I recently launched with a hawaii publisher a hybrid publishing and memoir writing line. So it's both a writing program as well as we take the author all the way through to publication and we wanted to use this micro memoir format. Which as i said you know we're defining it as three hundred words or less and we found that that was a really effective way you know. I've been teaching for over twenty years. And i know that when it comes to telling your story it can be so overwhelming i mean there are so many stories and of course there's always at least one family members that says you have to say this or you have to talk about that and it's something huge right talk about the war talk about what. We came over from china. I mean it's just it can be really overwhelming. And so the micro memoir format is a way for people to get into their stories pretty quickly and also get out. It's sort of the way. I i'd like to tell my students is. It's like you're gonna go into the grocery store. If i tell you you have twenty minutes. You're gonna take your time kind of looking around on the shelves. If you know you only have five minutes. You're gonna go in. Get what you need and get out so for me. That's what the micro format does the short for And it's also great. I think for the reader because the reader has a chance to get into the story without necessarily having to commit to the whole memoir decide. Yeah i'd like to do. I didn't like it. They get to see these snapshots that are you know. Very well contained in themselves that are different parts of your life for a moment or an aspect or an experience and really sort of deep dive with it. You know and and it's nothing it feels new because we haven't seen so much of it but it goes way back even in china. They've had these small stories for a long time. Well that was really my follow question. Is this a relatively new form of writing. 'cause until reading your book. I can't recall that. I've really read books like this. I think you know flash has been around for a while we'll see it most flash fiction And were sweet. We do see flesh Nonfiction in that's anywhere. It's usually seven fifty or less sometimes a thousand words or less. You know the short forms you know are something that i think. A lot of people are assuming because we are so twitter focused and hashtag focus these days at that must be the reason why it's coming back. you know. People have shorter attention spans. But you know as i mentioned you know if you look back over the history of literature It was interesting. Because i actually found a reference in china that used to have they used to be. They used to have stores or write stories. That you could actually hold in the palm of your hand made. That was the idea. The chinese word translation for it. And you can't ask me what it is can't remember if you fan as abc is but they were called palm size stories the translation and another one is called smoke long stories which is basically a story that you can read in the time it takes smoke a cigarette and so these are all things that happen in the tea houses for people to share stories and experiences. They were mostly not necessarily memoir there mostly More fiction short story basically. Just this idea of short right something that you could enjoy Without again having to give up your whole weekender your a week and I think what's happening is that people are reading differently. I think people are also more open to different forms of storytelling. I think that writers are also more I don't want to say courageous. But i think we feel like we have more permission to really use whatever form comes to us. You know when. I when i first started getting published. My first novel came out in two thousand seven. You know they were really the publishers are always about what your platform and they want you to stay in your shara and they don't like it when you go sort of off book right and now what we're seeing is that if you're a poet you can read memoir if your memoir is you can do a novel. If you're a novelist you can do short stories. I mean you can go wherever you want to go it. Just you know has to be good has to work. You have to understand the craft but there's not that same idea. I think that you can only do this. One thing which is very much the case. When i was starting out i had Independent filmmaker in our actor who was making a series for some kind of television streaming. But each show was three minutes long. And i was just trying to get my brain around back. So that's what. I was thinking when you were describing. Derian is they're saying well given a little bit more to the the time that we're living in their saying given the short attention spans if people that this is kind of the new format that was over a year ago is before the pandemic started so. I don't know if that form has survived. But right. But i will tell you that in reading these concise little moments that you've captured their times that i was thinking it's actually very difficult i would think to get it down to such a positive word. It's almost like writing a haiku. Where you you really are limited by this three hundred word. What have you so. How difficult was that for you to describe to bring us into these various episodes of your existence and decide what stays in what has to leave. You know i. That's such a great question. I think people are always really intimidated when they see a shorter for more smaller form. Because they think there's no way i can tell my whole story and what i say is actually some stories. Are i think that every story has its own natural form you know. In other words some stories really may need to be a full length memoir. Some stories may need to be much shorter. And you don't know until you start writing. The one thing that is hard with micro is you can't right. I mean you can but very difficult you don't write a memoir and then try to cut it down to three hundred dollars right. You don't do an eighty thousand word memoir data three hundred words. I think the brain is a pretty incredible thing. And i feel like it's an amazing organizational master and it has all of our memories all of our moments. It knows exactly where we are at any point in time emotionally with these moments so when you tell yourself as a writer..

I was cleaning up the kitchen and as all the dishes were now in the district. When i was doing the typical thing of turning on the garbage disposal and spring down the suds and watching all of this Go down the drain. I turned off the garbage disposal. And i happened to notice that the water was backing up in the adjoining sink. And sometimes it happens. A little bit but This was quite a bit of water but you know it was slowly starting to recede and then i heard what sounded like cascading water in the near distance. That's not a good sound upon investigating. I went over to our guest bathroom which is on the same sewer line and found that my toilet and shower were overflowing with this black sewage laden water and also the Receiver pipe behind. Our machine was overflowing and spewing a gray water onto the hallway floor immediately. Minos was assaulted with the stench of seoul for or methane or some kind of plague now this is way beyond both my pay grade in my skill level. I know what to do when flush the toilet and you start to see the water rising you just reach down on the wall and you turn off the water valve but this. This is coming up from the sewer me. Tell you finding a plumber on a saturday. Afternoon is no easy task. They got on yelp. Try plumber after plummer. Lotta times. It got an answering machine finally got a hold of a plumber. That was willing to come sunday afternoons this saturday sunday afternoon. I want him to come that day. No was available to come that day. So this whole idea of these plumbers that say they're available twenty four seven. I'm finding that that doesn't necessarily mean that they're gonna come. Twenty four seven is just like we'll answer our phone twenty four seven and then we'll see if we have slots that are open so i've found a a plumber ruder. That have never used before. They're basing whittier but they're willing to come on a sunday afternoon so okay. That's as soon as i can get. I'll take it while they arrived. And i i got to hand it to people who are plumbers. I mean they they probably see a lot of disgusting things they certainly. They opened the doors of the guest bathroom. They saw disgusting things but they didn't seem to flinch and they went right to work and they came back and they the problem and long story short. This is not a story about plumbing problems but they just said okay so you have cast iron pipes under the house and you know over time. Those cast iron pipes inside began to corrode and they also collect calcium it becomes rougher sandpaper inside those pipes and so sometimes toilet paper starts to catch on that and it stays and then more toilet paper catches and he says yeah you just had a huge bunch of toilet paper that had basically stopped and so he gave me three options cheaper. That is cheap and not cheap to deal with the problem going forward. They they end up having to remove my toilet in order to to actually get the snake in there and declared out in is saying. Look whatever you have to do today to get this whole thing back to the way it should be. Let's just take care of it. We still have to decide which of the three options we're gonna use but it did make me think that there are so many that we take for granted under daily basis you know turning on the garbage disposal and seeing things get chopped up and disappear flushing the toilet and having things disappear. I even turned on my computer. I've been editing. Thousands of photos that i've taken recently and i used it all morning and i went off to do something and i came back and it was off which is odd. Sometimes it goes to sleep but this was like completely off. And i kept trying to turn it on when go on when guan and i finally realized that the battery backup that the into and i've had that for probably five plus years. It had died on me and so i had to make an unplanned trip the best way to get a replacement. Everything's back to normal but these things in our life. They just work until they don't and it's really when they don't that we are forced to pay attention and sometimes it's a lot more critical than sewage. Coming up into your house. I think especially when his relationships especially a close relationships your spouse your children whether they're young or grown and gone all these kind of things that just are supposed to work and they do seem to work until they don't and that's when you have to pay somebody using a specialist to come take care of the problem. I will say this the introduction to next week's episode ongoing share something very current and very personal about one of my family relationships. That i'm really trying to stay on top of into not take for granted. There's been a new development that Has caused both my wife and i to really pay extra keen attention because we don't want it not to work so i'll leave you hanging with that. And in the meantime. I just know you're gonna love this conversation that i had with darrin shuji. Thanks for listening in..

They travel me all over the world already. So why join now is my thing nothing against it because we do need it and I'm glad we were living in voluntary service, you know where people aren't being drafted but I also want them to have the same level of patriotism and love for their country. Like that's why I want them to join not because it's fun and it's cool. It's hip all the cool kids are doing and it's like no I want to serve and that's you know, you know the servitude type mentality even though even in our church they serve so that's where if they want to serve.

"Just run with it. So you kind of brought up something that I wanted to tap into which was there are Aviation rescue swimmer. Surface Rescue Bots Navy rescue swimmers Coast Guard rescue swimmers Marine. The Marine Corps has rescue swimmers. Now, there are civilian rescue swimmers. There are civilian Pick-n-Pull wet aircrewman. There are thoughts rescue people. One of the things that I've tried to do with Coastal athlete program has always been to put more to try and bring all of our Common Grounds together because one thing that really hurt me in our community was how segregated it was and how how much your wings dictated whether or not you count it as a real star swimmer. Whereas for someone like me a person who physically took what it to get through but didn't have the clearance. You know, that was always really frustrating. It's like my recruiter screwed me over sent me to boot camp on a denied clearance and log Everything I could to change that like okay. I didn't I didn't do the Helo specific training, but that doesn't take away that as you were saying disentanglement procedures XI steps. You know, I still had to do a final I still had to do all these qualifications. What are what some of the ways that you've worked with other rescue swimmers other than just Aviation and how have you how have you tried to like build Bridges? Cuz ever since I met you, you've always been a person that looked for the Common Ground more so than you look for the exclusivity. So I've had a few run-ins with different swimmers specifically said I would say my first deployment on the USS Enterprise which is dcom now, we had a swim call and I remember they needed Us in the water. So there was so many blacks so many rescue swimmers and one of those registers was one of the vote swimmers and initially, I think had the the cocky arrogance that I was also brainwashed to have as well like most of us did I'm very new but and then I thought about it was in the water. I like but we're both in the water right now in my head. I was like only the only difference is is my job requires me to go find helicopter work done and you still have a source rating and then I thought it was a little less wage..

The story of Trevor Lawrence's life-changing summer

"So we just discussed how Trevor Lawrence is influence has been growing this off season I taking on issues of public health and racial inequality. But last month. The very thing that gives Trevor Lawrence his enormous Megaphone College football was put in jeopardy as players in conferences. Having. These discussions about canceling the season. What role in those discussions did Trevor Lawrence play. It was a Sunday night early August enduring. Trevor. Together again. There at travers fiancee's apartment and rumours are starting to pick up steam that some of the biggest most powerful conferences in college football the Big Ten PAC twelve that they're seriously considering, postponing their fall season, and this is coming at the end of a week. When of PAC twelve players have released a statement on the Players Tribune using the Hashtag we are united. And they've threatened to out fall CAM even opt out of games unless the conference mixed their demands for fair treatment and safety regulations and less the conference addresses concerns over racial justice, and meanwhile on a nearly parallel track, you have players the cost, the country, trevor, and fluted tweeting the Hashtag. We want to wait to express their desire to keep the seasonal live. So, in the Sunday night when it feels like college ball is teetering, it's actually dairying who decides to reach out to Dylan bowls. One of the players the Pactel's we are United Movement because endearing mine Houston gain. If we all join together the players in the we are united movement and the players in the we want to play movement that would be undeniably powerful for players who don't have concrete power who don't have a real seat at the table at least not yet their collective voice with the really hard to ignore because truly. So many of these fires want the same thing they want to play football this fall, they just want to do it in a safe responsible way. Dylan Daring, trevor they get on a three way facetime called a hash all this out to make sure they're all on the same page and that very quickly evolves into a zoom call with a dozen or so some of the biggest names in college football right Justin fields chew behind nausea. Harris And matter of thirty minutes, they agree to roll out a list of demands from this new fused Mecca Movement. It was amazing. How quickly we all got on the same page put something together I feel like the majority was getting spoken for. And we were like, Hey, we WANNA play. We want it to be safe but we do to take a watt mandated and universal safety procedures for Covid nineteen and they want to form players association. And it pretty much the stroke of midnight. These players, Tweeden Unison. But it's trevor naturally whose tweet is hurt the loudest he's re tweeted some fifteen thousand times including one quote tweet from President Donald Trump, and it's just a few days later actually that someone from the White House reaches out to Amanda Lawrence Trevor Lines mom letting her know that the president would like to get in touch with trevor. So hold on. So he has the president of the United States listening to him. Now let alone all of his peers across college football. What was that conversation with Donald Trump? Like? You know I would have loved to be a fly on whatever wall in whichever room that phone call took place the president has said really that trevor just reiterated his desire to play this season but trevor for his part hasn't divulged too much about that phone call. Conversation it was good I mean we just talked about kind of the whole we talked about that. We WanNA play like how's it going? How's it looking for the season and? president trump was just saying, yeah, I think our country needs college football and. then. Some small talk. Yes. We a little bit about what was going on in my life and vice versa. So that was pretty much the conversation though trevor is twenty years old the president of the United States wanted to speak to him. That is remarkable crazy. No matter which way you cut it. So. Let's recap here Halley Grossman because since March Trevor, Lawrence Age Twenty has faced pressure to help mitigate a global pandemic fight racism save the College football season display a level of political savvy and or gamesmanship that is obviously well beyond his years. So what else can you possibly be asked to do at this point? I mean look putting your stamp of approval which he's done on a list of demands that includes creating players. Association is a big deal. That's a radical way to reimagined that amateurism model that governs. College football right now but I think what this summer has shown is that trevor doesn't plan to quiet down you just a few days ago a whole lot of guys that original zoom call we talked about reconvened because they revealing again from a police shooting of a black man again, and so in the days after Jacob, Blake was shot. Trevor and Darien and Dylan, and a whole host of others talked once again to hammer out ways to help to draw attention to the issue and hopefully bring change. Trevor Lawrence football season is starting tomorrow and if all goes according to plan. He's GonNa win the heisman before becoming the first overall pick in next year's NFL draft teams have been salivating over his talent. There have been rumors that teams might even want to tank for Trevor Lawrence this season. So the question really that is, why is he even putting himself out there like this? Why even play the season? I mean that is the question, right? We have seen plenty a high profile opt-outs this season jomar chase at Lsu. Mike Parsons at Penn State today. Oregon. These are first round top ten NFL draft guys but no one literally nobody has less to lose by not playing the twenty twenty football season than Trevor Lawrence. are in a player having a job borough like. Or I don't know an asteroid hitting the earth, his Cossacks to go number one overall are safe, and at the same time, no one has less to gain by paddling the status quo or shaking up the current system than trevor does this system works just fine for him? He is a young white man. He's a young white quarterback, and so I asked Amanda, his mother that seems washing. Why? Why do all this? I put himself out there and she said something interesting she said look. there. are players out there who do need to even if trevor doesn't and there are people out there for whom the status quo and the current system don't work even if it works for him and he understands that now probably better than he ever has and he just wants to help. That's really it know told me one of his goals for the senior only meeting because he wanted everyone to understand that unless everyone is good no one is good and trevor, his best friend took that to heart. Of the day, there's so much division in our country. Just word of some people that WanNa see people together, WanNa see people love each other and I think that's where a lot of the things I do. It stems from that just wanted to see people happy together not divided. With all this pressure now from all of these different places in our country. Landing Atop. Trevor Lawrence's shoulders. What are you personally expect from him when the season starts? Because of the ways in which Trevor Lawrence has stepped onto center stage this summer it's almost easy to forget what it is. That gives him that stage in the first place, he is extremely good at his job. Term Lawrence is an excellent quarterback. Making predictions in two, thousand, twenty, hundred, probably a fools errand. But tomorrow, there's football comes we'll pay wake forest, and if clemson continues to play if they and the ACC and the big twelve and sec are able to play a full season, don't be surprised to see Trevor Lawrence back on the national championship stage. Don't be surprised to see Trevor Lifting the national championship trophy and along the way don't be surprised to see trevor continuing to speak out and perhaps that's one of the safest predictions you can make in twenty twenty. Life to be reflection of what I say and what I believe I've been thinking about everything that's going on and I think there has been some some moments where I had to say some things because it's just the right thing to do and it's time really is just how I live my life I want it to reflect what I say. I. Would always be the same person I want to be consisted. Eliot Grossman. Thank you for jumping on stage with. US. Thank you so much for having me. Pablo.

MLB commissioner confident league will get through season

"What happened with the Marlins in Philadelphia was just a reminder of how fragile this season is. So here we are. Three games in there's a crisis in Major League Baseball is trying to stage a season in the middle of an escalating prices. We both agree. If it expands, you've got to stop in a country that obviously hasn't been able to corral Corona virus. Any little. One thing consent this season spiraling. It doesn't look good. But MLB commissioner Rob Manfred telling our Karl Ravech there is no reason to quit. Now we are playing, he said. The players need to be better. And I am not a quitter. In general. Manford confident his sport can get through the regular season and postseason without being stopped because he also cautions that there's a chance that not every team might play all 60 games as winning percentage could be used. To determine playoff teams. It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless buster, only ESPN MLB Insider on Darien, Mel, There was really discouragement, you know, after what happened the Marlins last weekend Jeff Passan reporting about the frank conversation between Rob Manfred and Tony Clark. That happened yesterday. And then the news this morning that more cardinals tested positive the dominoes keep falling in the wrong direction. I just did, SportsCenter said. You know if Major League Baseball is a boxer, they just keep taking body blows. And it's some point. Yeah, it's just going to become too much. You think Keith Overman just report a little while ago that MLB is reached out to their broadcast partners and basically told him you need to prepare alternate programming for the week ahead, So yeah, very discouraging, and I got to tell you there's there's a lot of frustration at the team level with people feeling like that, while for the most part There are a lot of players trying to make it work front office is trying to make it work that in some cases that behavior just did not change in a way that was going to best protect all the players. They thought it was a Hail Mary All along, you know the thought was is that there could be some positive tests. And if there was that there could be some isolation. But for example, the major league Baseball testing has been every other day. Well, what happens if a player is infected? The day after he gets tested, and then he's around his teammates. The lag in the test results, which Sean do little. The national spoke to right off the bat where there was concerned that you know with the results just don't come back fast enough to do the isolation in the contact tracing that would be necessary to hold it down Those air reasons why, at the outset of this thing, there was a lot of skepticism that they could actually make it

"Caring so truth Darien carrying the three pillars that that. I'm I find I'm. Most resonate with. Yeah. Well, when I was watching your demo video you mentioned those right? So real promises real daring and real caring. So let's talk about those David. So what what are some of the real promises that we make our we should be making to help our business grow and help our life. Be better. Well, let's jump out get a little meta about this. I think in general, we don't we don't make many real promises. I say a real promise is one that has a timeframe attached to it. Yeah. I'll get that report to you. And I'll do it by Friday, five o'clock. That's kind of red. We say, yeah. Get it to you hoping that, you know, the latest slide on it. And even if we did say, I'll get you by fire Friday, five o'clock, how often would that actually happen? Not often. Sorry. Yeah. Not not enough. So yeah. So we just don't have. We don't have a culture of actually making promises and the ones we do, Mike. We don't actually have a culture of keeping the promises. And then the third third thing that I think's important at promises, we don't have a culture of cleaning up when we when we break it promises. We don't say, hey, you know, what I told you? I'd get that you by five o'clock Friday. It's not gonna happen or it didn't happen. I polish is I recommit to choose die at five o'clock, and you can count on this like how rare is that. Yeah. Unfortunately, it's all too rare. I think you know, it's the, but it's also the mentality of I'm under promise and over deliver. And if I don't give you a date the fact that I delivered all is better than not at all is better than anything. Right. I would say under promising another delivering delivering is integrity. That's great. But most people don't do that. It's like, yes. Yes. I'll do it. And then we don't do it. Right. Or all pick you up at four o'clock come on. What are the odds that you're actually going to be there for clock? So I think under promised thing is like, hey, I'll be there by four thirty. And then get there at four o'clock. That's brilliant. I so I'm all for that. I think it's very common. I'm doing a training right now with a company in Switzerland. And they just want more awareness for this stuff. They want people to actually care about what they say. So that they can come together as a team. Now, if you're not gonna do it by five o'clock Friday, let me know that. So we can have a conversation and see what needs to happen. That's all I care about it. Let's have a conversation. Yeah. I like to call that let me know before you let me down. Don't tell me at quarter after. Four that you're not going to be there at for right? Actually, gimme some heads up. Like we scheduled with a couple of times because things happen, right? And we then came back into integrity and said, we're gonna do it today at this time, and we made that happen. And I think that's. To your point. It's it's good. It's good to do. But it's it's not often enough. So so is there a simple way to make that happen, David? I mean, do we just, you know, do we just keep our word? I mean is it that he? What I need is. I need structure to keep my promises if I say to young energy something, and I don't go and put it in my phone with a reminder, and if it's really important actually set an alarm that will keep ringing until I stop it. Then it's not going to happen. And it's really I'm just planning to have a broken promise..
