About Carol Bryant

Hi. My name is Carol Bryant. I'm a transplanted New Yorker, living in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains. While it was skiing that initially drew me to Colorado, it's been the laid-back, outdoor lifestyle which has kept me here for nearly 30 years. I'm a writer, nurse, travel agent and mediocre tennis player. I began my writing career 20 years ago, writing essays and magazine articles. Recently, I completed my first manuscript and am currently seeking representation for this work. It's a memoir of my nursing career which spans two continents, forty years and some of the most intriguing characters who have ever entered a hospital. I’ve been told that if I ever hope to have my memoir published, I need to establish a platform – a following of readers who enjoy my writing. So, I am shamelessly asking for you to become part of that platform. I plan to blog on various topics that I find entertaining. If you are entertained, moved to cry or laugh out loud, then I have accomplished what I have set out to do. I feel as if I am taking that first, timid step out onto the frozen lake, hoping that the ice will hold me. It’s scary as hell but I’ll give it a go. After some of the things I have faced down in my 40 years of nursing, how bad can blogging be? It beats shaving scrotums.

    Dear Skip,

    You ARE a fine one to talk, and you talk SO well about all topics, especially this tricky one. I shed an tear whilst reading your latest (long overdue!) blog, which may be unmanly in some eyes, but not my moist ones. Don’t forget some men are also conflicted by the parent trap, and Father Guilt is also real. It can be difficult to be more the providor than the nurturer for the family whose mum chooses to stay at home and look after the kids, and all too easy to miss out on landmark kid’s events whilst you steer the financial ship that keeps the family afloat and provides for kid’s education. I guess Dads & Mums should both willingly sacrifice no matter their role in the kid raising department, not necessarily equally, but hopefully equitably. Amen to your comments about raising kids strong enough to leave home with some parent endowed confidence to make their way into the world. What a ride!
