It's funny, but I was just blogging about your sabbatical on my blog!

I continue to admire your work in this area and agree that it seems less like a sabbatical and more like an overall recalibration.

Here's to introvert pride!


There's a Zadie Smith quote I think she actually stole from her husband that goes "time is the way we spend our love" and thinking about that has made it easier for me to reprioritize. I'm a person who needs a lot of time inside myself and preparing to parent has given me a chance to not feel guilty about shedding some of the people who take more out of me than they'll ever give back. For me at least, it's been a real relief.
