Grandchildren can be the best teachers
It’s been almost two years since I submitted what I thought was my final column to Your Workplace, gratefully sending it off to start the transition to active semi-retirement. At least I thought it would be my final column until my friend, the esteemed YW president emailed me to inquire whether I would “spill some ink” with reflections on life after four decades of teaching, consulting and writing. Friends and readers of Your Workplace will know how persuasive she can be.
I was asked to reflect on life then and now, describing new ventures and regrets from the days of busyness and deadlines. She even allowed that such matters might take more than one column. I was only to write as the spirit moved me. As the saying goes, Vera, be careful what you wish for!
