I am knee-deep in a dissertation (and teaching myself to knit, can, preserve and container garden along the way) and I am most certain the only light right now is from the train that is coming way to fast. Can't wait to read the books! Hey Sharon -

Congratulations on seeing the end of the tunnel! I am knee-deep in a dissertation (and teaching myself to knit, can, preserve and container garden along the way) and I am most certain the only light right now is from the train that is coming way to fast. Can’t wait to read the books!

And, although winter has long been my favorite season, I too am ready for spring this year! While it's not sticking anymore, it's still snowing here too, and windy, and brrrr!!

I love reading your stuff, but I often wonder how the heck you can get it all done (and still sleep sometimes). Here's to taking a slower, more deliberate path in raising children and being families. I find myself jettisoning large pieces of "career building" work so that I can make homemade bread or water the seedlings. I'm trying to take a longer view of what will really matter to me in years gone by--and it's not racing hither thither. I spend a tremendous amount of time (through board meetings, hearings and other professional responsibilties) spending time with people that I do not enjoy. I've been thinking that I'm going to "change the world" and "make a difference" but I see that my impact is so darn marginal, meanwhile the missed family dinners loom large. I respect your calling it in to channel energy to your family! And I know it will make you more productive in the end (perhaps not in # of blog posts, but by some other measures). I hear you!!!
