About this blog:
This blog began in my early years as an academic librarian, but topics covered were mostly related to my non-professional life. Around the time I got married and became pregnant with our first, I began to realize just how integrated the professional and personal aspects of my life are, and that this integration was the key to not only keeping my sanity but to succeeding at both. That was when I decided to make this blog intentionally about how these parts of my life relate to one another and to the whole. Post topics range from libraries, teaching, technology, academia, home life, working motherhood, gentle parenting, school, and most importantly: how all these things relate to one another.
A constellation is not just the stars that serve as points in the overall picture, but also the spaces between the points that give them context and meaning. This blog is an experiement in enacting this idea using the informational points in my life as signposts that, when considered together, depict an integrated whole.
