This post is the thirteenth in a series of Spilled Milk columns by Emmy Award-winning writer and producer William Lucas Walker that chronicle his journey through parenthood. Spilled Milk, which originates in The Huffington Post, appears on these pages on Saturdays.



To celebrate my one-year anniversary writing for The Huffington Post, here is a gift for you at the end of our shortest month: my shortest column.

Guarantee: getting through it will take no more than three minutes, four if you cry at videos that feature inspiring kids, guitar music and sound bytes from Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech.

If you read last month’s column (Spilled Milk: Name Calling Is For Morons… You Giant Loser Dork), consider it a flowering — the sort of thing only children can harvest when the right ideas are planted. Here’s what one elementary school can accomplish when 399 students come together (led by an amazing art teacher named Katy Parks Wilson), each contributing a unique, tiny slice of imagination to create a startling, moving mosaic.

William Lucas Walker is an Emmy Award-winning writer and producer whose television credits include Frasier, Will & Grace and Roseanne. He co-created the critically-acclaimed Showtime comedy The Chris Isaak Show. Bill and his husband Kelly are the parents of Elizabeth and James, born in 2001 and 2005. The children were gratified by the legal marriage of their parents in 2008, an event that rescued them from a life of ruinous bastardry.

Spilled Milk chronicles Bill’s misadventures in Daddyland. The first recurring humor column by a gay parent to appear in a mainstream American publication, Spilled Milk has regularly landed on the front page of The Huffington Post.
