My Essay in the New York Times on New Year's Eve

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.
