Law Degree, Sheep Care Guide, and Pedagogical training
My typical day has never been typical. It has always involved finding a way to blend my professional and personal life. In my first career as an attorney, I ran my own practice. That allowed me to devote time daily, as needed, to my family. With my children grown, my nurturing instincts led me to rural living and raising sheep. I was lucky to have a supportive wife who had a substantial income and supported me while I tried my hand at raising sheep (joyous work but not highly income productive). As my children became parents, I turned to higher education and now teach law virtually giving me the freedom to spend my day partly as online faculty and partly as grandpa.
The hardest part of my job has been to deal with society’s expectations concerning who and what we “should be” and what we are “supposed” to earn. I never sought my identity through my career. I sought it through my family and that was difficult for others, especially attorneys, to understand.

Shape your work to fit you….don’t be shaped by it. It’s work….it’s not life.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique.
