I think we underestimate the importance of home and family. I think it’s particularly important for the man who lives a life of reflection. After hours of intense thinking and days of intense work, stepping through the door of my home does more than satisfy my desire to be with family, it grounds me, and centers me. It reminds me that despite all of my uncertainties, there is something that matters to me enough that I can’t lose myself in a sea of questions.
My family rescues me from myself.
