The summer after my college sophomore year, I had the opportunity to visit Ireland for the summer. And while I was in Dublin, in the middle of that hot summer, I had to figure out a way to buy two (very expensive for me at the time) undyed Irish fisherman sweaters. These sweaters are beautiful and each of them tell a story about the family who wears them, the men who were often at sea making a living, and today, about the tradition. These sweaters were very popular in Boston where everybody - and I mean EVERYBODY - is Irish. So, I had to have one... or two...

Adam’s cables tell the story of parents around the world driving on two-lane roads and facing the unexpected twists and turns our children present. Adam’s cables tell the story of the communications' trials and tribulations we face with our family members, our friends, our co-workers, and even with strangers. These are all two-lane roads.

For every argument, disagreement, or misunderstanding we have in one lane, there is another side. And… these twists and turns have taught me that…
- On the other side of controversy, there is peace.
- On the other side of confusion, there is understanding.
- On the other side of a tear, there is a belly laugh so hard, you can't help but cry.
- And on the other side of frustration, there is tolerance, there is compassion, and there is love.
