“Let’s go back, let’s go back, let’s go way on, way back when…” (Aretha Franklin): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqYnevHibaI You know when you start telling a story and then you realize that in order for it make sense, your listener probably needs to know X and that in order to know X, they need to know Y andContinue reading “Where to start?”
You know, the timestamp on this blog thing is brutal. The last post was May 3. Today is… a fair amount later. The delay, in part, is due to my pondering what my next post might be about when sooooo little is happening our lives. Desperation finally led to the following thought process: Hey! IContinue reading “A diversion”
Hold it, wasn’t Easter like…3 weeks ago? Easter was actually on April 12 (I just looked it up) but I’ll be honest; this year, it snuck up and caught us completely unaware. In our house, however, disregarding Easter was not popular. For the kids, it was unacceptable to miss out on an opportunity to stockContinue reading “Easter egg hunt!”
It was so sad this week to learn of the news of Donald Kennedy’s death on April 21, 2020. In addition to making key contributions to science, to Stanford, and to the nation, Don was one of the founders and early Directors of the Human Biology Program. I wrote to alumni on Friday to share theContinue reading “Remembering Don Kennedy”
Good morning, all! My daughter and I biked to campus yesterday to take pictures to give you some more glimpses of your beautiful university. It is really missing its students! As are we.
Coming in just under the wire to ensure an at least weekly blog. Not sure if you’ve found this, but my, how the bar has been lowered lately. Anyway, to start us off, our roses are about to bloom! Now lest one get any grandiose notions, our roses look fantabulous for about 2 weeks andContinue reading “The Homefront”
Hello All! We made it to the end of the first week of Stanford’s spring quarter and what that means in this house, for some reason, is that everyone collapsed onto a heap on the couch, waiting for our Doordash delivery. For our kids, this past week was spring break. Not clear it was markedContinue reading “Spring quarter, end of week 1”
Hello All! Tomorrow is the official start of spring quarter at Stanford. My husband and I rode our bikes all over campus this morning in the rain to take pictures to create this slideshow for our awesome HumBio students. We miss having you on campus!
Ominous post title, right? Especially given the closed-society, shelter-in-place situation we’ve got going on here. Now in the interests of full disclosure, I made it about 10 minutes into the very first Game of Thrones (GOT) episode when it came out ages ago and – with limbs and heads flying hither and thither – IContinue reading “A Game of Thrones”
Now is the time to cue that song that always makes me cry: This is the song that makes me think, “Oh my God, I’ve missed my children growing up! I didn’t appreciate them enough, didn’t relish those little moments” and then I’m like “Oh my God!! WHO LEFT THIS MESS IN THE KITCHEN?” AndContinue reading “They grow up so fast!”
