I was feeding Eli late on Saturday night and had trouble getting him back to sleep, so I found myself at Tamara Out Loud, one of my favorite faith-ish blogs.
It felt like particular grace that the guest author was a coworker from my work in Boston- though she worked at a different campus - who I had opportunity to cross paths with a few times. She was a colleague you don't forget- passionate and affirming, wise without being condescending.
I wished we worked more closely together as there was so much I could learn from her as a Public Health person (I still don't know what to call us), as someone who has lived around the world, and as someone who has raised five children. But I changed positions from coordinating a program (where I had a lot of contact with many people) to coordinating a research study (which was a very new thing at my work, so didn't lend itself to as much collaboration), and then I moved to South Africa. So I am so grateful to have a second chance to learn from her, through Communicating Across Boundaries.
In short, I'm a huge fan and was so excited to introduce her blog to you, particularly if you're in Boston or navigating multiple cultures. Check out the new addition on the right!
