Reflections During a European VacationRobert Brooks, Ph.D.

This is my last website article until September. As I have expressed each year in my June article, I am very appreciative of the many thoughtful comments I have received in response to my monthly columns. The feedback, questions, and insights from my readers are always welcome and very meaningful to me. One of my primary goals in writing these articles is not only to share information and ideas but to have the information and ideas serve as a catalyst for self-reflection and self-change. This article is being sent out later in the month than previous articles. One reason is that my wife Marilyn and I were on vacation in Italy during the first two weeks of June and except for my writing a few e-mails, especially to family, I made an effort to forego engaging in work-related activities. I thought it wise to practice what I preach about balancing one’s personal and professional lives. Consequently, I wanted to focus my time and attention on visiting the many historic sites in Rome, Venice, and Florence, walking around and taking in the beauty of these lovely cities, enjoying delicious meals, and spending uninterrupted time with Marilyn.
