What I’m Up To

As suggested here, this is what I’d highlight if I ran into a friend I hadn’t seen in a year:

Family

  • Supporting Oliver as he settles into the day program at Stars for Life, and prepared to audit a philosophy course this winter at the University of PEI, starting in January.
  • Sad that the weather means that Oliver and I have had to put our bicycles aside for the season; it’s been a lovely summer and fall of cycling together, and I miss it a lot.
  • Supporting Catherine as she enters her 6th year of living with metastatic breast cancer.

Paid Work

  • Working remotely with colleagues at Yankee Publishing, primarily on the infrastructure supporting Almanac.com (this is my 23rd year of this partnership).

Unpaid Work

Volunteer Work

  • Serving on the board of directors of Stars for Life, focusing on obtaining long-term, sustainable funding for the organization. I’ve recently joined the newly-formed HR committee.
  • Continuing to do what I can to advocate for government support of people with autism and thinking about how non-profit organizations supporting people with autism on Prince Edward Island can better coordinate our services, training, etc.

I last updated this December 2, 2019, and have set myself a reminder to update it monthly from here onward.
