As I wrote in my previous posts, life is about to change in a big way for me. Within the next few months, I will be settling in one place, no longer being a nomad, but still traveling. Instead of 12 months of travel each year, constantly moving from place to place, I estimate that I will travel for closer to six months of each year. That is still a lot of travel, but between trips, I will be returning to a particular place, with my stuff on the walls, and an office set up to my preferences, and a big bathtub for soaking out the kinks of sitting in airplane seats for hours at a time.
Found this video on my computer after graduation. I must have filmed it in February or so of my 2L year. It’s about how to breath through the anxiety of uncertainty, which I am actually finding helpful to watch right now myself… Mindfully moving through change somehow always feels relevant… especially when you aren’t sure what’s up for you next.
Mediation with a small “m” or Mediation with a capital “M,” and what’s the difference?
It’s a matter of style and paradigm.
This post represents a departure for me. Most obviously, this is my first post since having officially graduated. But it is also the beginning of a series of “conversations” I am beginning to engage in with law professors (from across the U.S. & the world). Sometimes it will be presented in the form of actual dialogues, captured in real-time, mediated through remote devices. Sometimes it will actually be in person. And sometimes, often I expect, it will be in the form of responses I have to work of these profs, or reflections they have put into the world, ON their work. On teaching. On “practice.” On “the law.”
