My dad was a chemical engineer (now retired), my mother was a dancer and later a sociologist (worked on her doctorate throughout my teens).
Their debates and viewpoints on science, philosophy of science, social science, politics and their library (enormous) were the background noise and foreground content that made my home life growing up *always* extremely interesting and set me and my sister up for lifetime of inquiry and curiosity about so many things.
The other day, clearing up some papers, they came across this article they wrote together in 1983 for Chemtech magazine. Reading it and seeing that collaborative spirit in the article is reminding me how lucky I was to grow up with the two of them.. (plus they look really cute in their backpacks..) .. grateful ! ! <3
