Cache cache, that is:
The sabbatical has exited the 'frantically putting words down on paper" phase to a more contemplative reading-and-thinking-about-the-reading phase. That's good! I also have been taking a bit more time for me. I also have a new project going with some new colleagues and that seems to be working well too.
AND I collected data for what I swear will be the last study I personally initiate.
I'm writing (in my head) an opinion piece called "The Myth of Colloquial Understanding" which demonstrates that even though we use words and phrases like organic, cruelty free, local and chemical free, we have no idea what they mean (or what the people who use them in messages that we read and hear mean). These words all have positive halos which create associations which may lead people to make decisions that are not the 'best' for the individual. For example, many people think organic means 'healthy' and 'chemical free' means safe and that is not always the case.
Well, of course, nothing can be chemical free so I guess in the way "nothing is safe" which gets a bit existential for me.
I'm guessing you might like me better when I'm in the frantic stage!
Have a wonderful weekend!
