I am a big fan of the New York Times, so I was delighted when the editor of the Motherlode section told me she was planning to publish an essay I wrote about how parents can make more time for themselves: "When It Takes A Dentist's Chair to Disconnect."
The illustration by Spencer Williams that the Times paired with the essay is spot on.
The piece was published on December 31 but I wasn't able to see it until the next day since I was in a remote part of the California coast without cell phone or WiFi service. Much better than the dentist's chair, I must say.
Wishing you a happy and joyful 2015.
