Last week, I had the good fortune to meet Ralph Taylor, Temple Criminal Justice Professor extraordinaire. We were both on the National Institute of Justice peer review panel in Washington D.C. and he guided me to Union Station via the Metro. We sat next to each other on the train back to Philadelphia and had a lovely chat the entire ride home (on the quiet car… sorry).
One of the things we talked about was being busy and how it affects your kids. He mentioned Charlie Ravioli, a little girl’s imaginary friend that he read about. Ralph emailed me the article today and now I want to share it with you. Definitely something to think about before you say yes to the next conference/speaking engagement/panel/meeting/thing that takes you away from your family. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
