Excellent piece, Ev — and a wonderful permission slip to do what works best for the indivisual. As a working parent, I believe more in work/life boundaries than I do in work/life balance. The word ‘balance’ conveys that we always get the mix of work life to home life just right when in reality the ratio will also be different. Sometimes our focus will need to be solely on work, while at other times our attention will be entirely dedicated to family. Nice informal round-up. Thank you for posting.
