When I was a freshman in college, thinking of maybe majoring in Philosophy, I had the following conversation with my father:
Dad: So, as Pre-law, what do you actually major in?
Me: No real pre-req’s, I can major in anything, but I was thinking, maybe...Philosophy.
Dad (after visibly grimacing and measuring his words): Well...perhaps you can double-major in Communications, so then at least we’ll get to hear about all you’re pondering.
There ensued a minor skirmish over my course curriculum; though not necessarily in deference to my father, I ended up a Business major. Still, reasoning and logic, arguments and wrangling, served me well in my legal career. And, the search for a better understanding and to make sense of it all, inspires my writing—and hopefully my readers.
