As the mother of a young child, my former “work hard / play hard” philosophy has evolved into something resembling “work efficiently / live vicariously through kid.” I find new inspiration in volunteering for my daughter’s school and helping her learn how to think like a scientist. In the summer we like to hike, swim, paddle, and hunt mushrooms as a family. In the winter we go cross-country skiing. Good food is usually involved. In my precious “free” time, I run, ski, and take as many Cuban dance classes as possible.
