SABBATICAL STATE OF MIND

Infusing more life into life

December 15, 2018

We took away our son's phone on Dec 2.

It was pending after many heated, prolonged, entitled exchanges.

I know my husband thought it wouldn't happen; but, I don't believe in rocking the boat before an irreversible life event, especially if there isn't do-over. When the o...

Ten years ago when we elected the first black president: Did we envision the resistance of the current backlash movement?

All that build up and anticipation for a “defining moment” and then what? Life continues on as it always does. Life continues on whether or not things go our way. Life continues on whether we are defined or undefined by that moment or any other. So then what?

I am revisiting tennis. These aren’t high school gym lessons and enough time has passed to give this a try again. So, what will I get out of this experiment? 


Learning is one of the ways to see our blind spots out in the open. So, I think this will continue to improve...

It was just a week ago that I tried to capture all of these memories. As a scientist, I wonder if trying to remember so much and trying to capture it all will alter our relationships. And as a Mom, I secretly hope it does.  

Especially, these bright light moments. The o...
