minimalism and differential calculus
i was interviewed today by my graduate school alma mater, stanford university, for a feature that will come out next summer in their alumni magazine. i’m pretty thrilled about it, in part because our daughter, eva, is currently a sophomore at stanford, and i sort of love embarrassing her. i’m that kind of mom. my stanford degree is a masters of science in aeronautics and astronautics, aka aerospace engineering. a career i practiced with enthusiasm for 15 years, before i quit to raise children before it was too late. as the kids got older and more independent, i eventually started a quirky little daily creative practice for myself called STILL blog. one thing led to another, and here we are–six years into my one-year, minimalist creative challenge–and stanford thought that kind of mid-life transition was interesting enough to feature in their magazine. full circle. a very strange circle. but full.
