i often hear women at work say, "I wanted to stay home today," "Can I go home now?" "I want to be at home." i wonder what it is that drives us to be "at home." we work too many hours, we have creative lives that pull us, we have children to be with, we have a santuary that calls. how do we balance our home & work life in a society that does not recognize nor honor this deep need? if i could, i would stay home today.
