September 2014 STS – What Did You Do Over Your Summer Vacation?
Do you remember when that was the question you were asked your first day back to school as a child? For most of us, our childhood summer vacations were two-month long escapes from the dreariness of math, history and cutting up frogs.
As an adult in our profession, don’t we too need to escape our obligations and activities for a short while? I work in the area of diversity and often speak to groups about tough issues such as white privilege and racism. My soul and brain need a yearly break and this summer I spent two months finishing writing a mystery fiction book. I feel energized and ready to return to my speaking and training business.
