A lawyer for children committed to international non-profit work, I left the US to work in India, South Africa, now Australia. Nourished by nature, I am continually inspired by the beautiful resilience of people.

  • Feeling, following and flowing
    on Jun 12, 2011
    Time is not a constant. Einstein taught us this, and it's really sunk deeply into me recently. I can meditate for an hour and it feels like 20 years of dreams/thoughts/astral travel, walk for 2 hours and it feels like 4 days of movement, or ride my b...

    on Apr 25, 2011
    So I was working 80 hour weeks on two jobs, my boss and I coordinating and co-facilitating a successful and moving restorative justice-based conference on clergy sexual abuse on Friday, and researching and writing a government submission paper on im...
  • Multiple Jobs and 1 Person does not for much time make
    on Mar 29, 2011
    I've been wanting to blog for ages, to share--or maybe to gloat--that my current home is the second-most liveable city in the world, that in an effort to go easy on myself I tell myself it's important to prioritise time and if blogging and uploading...
  • The Power of Empowerment
    on Feb 5, 2011
    The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Bill of 2010, which has been front page news since July (and I'm mentioned in a fore-running article here), has reached an intense debate recently on the age of consensual sex. The basic idea is not to...
  • "You'll love it here, and never want to leave!"
    on Jan 24, 2011
    Life in Australia is easy. Social support structure, small population, minimal violence and international conflict (in Wikileaks, the US describes Australia as a "rock-solid" and uninfluential ally) make it quite comfortable here. And, as my Australi...
  • Cheers! Salut! Prost! Oogy Wawa!
    on Dec 31, 2010
    Happy New Year! Instead of rushing into the future thinking what I want to achieve in 2011, I'm taking time to reflect on and relish accomplishments of the past year(s) and celebrate personal and career growth, and the support of friends and family a...
  • You Give, I Give, We All Give!
    on Dec 16, 2010
    "Your life is all variables and no constants," a friend said to me today, appealing to the math major in me. Except for the lovely people in my life and idealistic area of work I am passionate about and determined to somehow earn a living doing, ther...

    Wow, what a great CV/story. We're doing xyz. We wish we could use your skills, and have no openings at the moment. Abc would be a great person for you to meet.The current chorus, followed by:You'll find a job after the holidays, in Jan or Feb for sur...
  • "You're a Refugee from America!"
    on Nov 27, 2010
    So said one of the lawyers I met this week in my networking & job-hunting palooza. (Apologies to Spanish friends who ask, 'Where in America??' when people from the US say they're 'American.') Unemployment here is around 5%, and people are shocked whe...
  • Operation 'Make a Life in Australia' Has Begun
    on Nov 21, 2010
    Monday I arrived in the Land Down Under. My bags decided to join me two days later. I woke up the second morning un-jetlagged and had a mini panic attack that I once again moved to a new country with no set job/friends/permanent housing/etc. My mom t...
