. . .  what books would be on my office shelves, I probably would have guessed very wrong. I've always considered myself to be a generalist, of sorts. For example, I resisted specializing in environmental policy, already quite specialized, and chose communications instead of a particular policy focus. Well, that was another lifetime, but recently, ... [Read more]

I used to blog. Then I had a kid and then, even worse, I made one of my hobbies into my day job. I watched many NaBloPoMos, Blogher's challenge to post every day in November, pass without signing up. This year, in an effort to force myself to create fresh written content for Breathing Space ... [Read more]

Over the past year or so, the family yoga programing I've been building on Capitol HIll has grown beyond just me. (As far as I know, Amalie, Cindy, Kate and Rebecca don't answer to the name Jen.)
