Got a very sweet note and pic from 8th grade teacher Ania Bigda, who is enjoyed her well-deserved pool time reading The Impossible Knife of Memory.
Which makes this author so happy I want to carry a fancy cold drink with an umbrella in it to her house.

Sweden gives dads an option American men can only dream of

Lawmakers in Sweden understood the importance of equal options for new parents early on. For 40 years the country has offered gender-neutral paid parental leave, where a couple may decide who takes the allotted 10 days. The country now has incentives to encourage men to take that leave, and across the board, close to 90% of Swedish fathers opt to spend quality time with their newborns.
And it’s having a positive effect on women

Happy Birthday Lynda Carter (July 24, 1951)

"Wonder Woman really is a phenomenon unto herself, the show and the character really has a life of its’ own. She represented, uh, hope, I think, for young women, and she also represented for young men, mind you, which I get a lot of mail on, the type of, like the perfect woman, one that could be beautiful and smart and fun and strong."

My hero. 

My goddess and mentor.
