East coast born, lived in London but lost the accent, Philly for college, D.C. for job in politics, transplanted South for law school, back on the coast to practice law. I read a lot. Decently traveled. Headed to Iceland in the spring.
I recently came to the realization that a fulfilling adult life consists of a lot of day to day discipline and routine mixed with intense, novel and meaningful experiences. Like realizing there are no more grades, this is cool, but intimidating.
I think it is very important to be kind to children and polite when you are in pain.
