A “Rich” life

We all suffer travails. On balance, however, most of us, me especially, have rich lives.

My life is rich in intellectual stimulation. For example, Professor Akhil Reed Amar recently delivered the Chautauqua Institution’s 10th annual Robert H. Jackson Lecture on the Supreme Court of the United States.  The lecture, entitled “Robert Jackson and the Judicialization of the Judiciary,” was fascinating, insightful and a crowd-pleaser. You can watch it all here on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OR0IFnKWHA&list=PLZQsNvvrHNbT1c5AGYRdedEKTG5qjamvx. It is lectures like this that make my life especially rich in the world of ideas.

Then there is the joy of family like Petra traveling to Hong Kong with her mother to see the doctor and learn how the yet to be born baby is doing and proudly filling out her own her own travel papers before she boarded the ferry between the PRC and Hong Kong.

Petra filled out her own papers before boarding the ferry. She prints in big block letters much like her goofy grampa.

That’s it. There is no more, but that’s plenty.

  1. When I finally pulled myself away from the photos of your exquisite granddaughter I watch the Professor Amar lecture. Thanks for making it available to those of us who have little time to ponder the greater issues in the law. He is a great thinker and teacher.

  2. Richard,

    I over use “brilliant,” but Professor Amar fits every definition of that word that I can think up. All the best.

  3. Petra is quite the adventurer and shopper. I love her printing – she will be a star as she goes through school.
