Sorry, life attack prevented Science Friday from going off on time.  I had to move into the Director’s office at work (which is exactly the same as my old office, only with a better view), so that the new scientist that is coming to save me by taking over some of my old responsibilities (which […]

The romanticism of our modern society likes to make such an ideal out of the concept of unconditional love – the self-sacrifice, the constancy, the faith.  But I think the ideal folds back upon us and paints us into a corner from which there is no escape. It demands we love beyond the bounds of […]

Sorry to get this late start.  Last Friday was my son’s birthday (more on that later), and life got unexpectedly complicated in the interim.  Well, let me rephrase that – it got more complicated.  More on that later, too.  Maybe.

I want to say thank you again.  Her Bad Mother has nominated my MBT entry for a June ’07 Perfect Post award. Getting a nod from another blogger whose writing I envy is so much better than candy.  It makes me even sadder that I am not going to be able to make BlogHer this year […]
