A Gift of Light and Shadow

A Gift of Light and Shadow

Six years ago, I was a little more than a year into law practice at a large, top tier firm in Southern California. It was a terrible fit, but I was deeply invested. I had done well at Duke law school, and being offered a job with this firm was a great achievement. My husband and I had long planned to move back to his home state of California, and taking the job made it easy to undertake the cross-country move and the drastic change in cost of living.
