One of the dreams that Janika Dillon is currently 'dating' is pursuing a PhD in History. In exploring this possibility, one of the people Janika wanted to learn from was Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in History, and a Harvard professor. So, she combined her dreaming with some derring-do, and asked to meet with Ms. Ulrich. Janika begins with the question: Your life's work has been to study the daily lives of women in history. What do you think is the benefit to women today in looking back? What can we learn from these women in history?
"I don't even have the time or energy to hear myself think a thought, how can I possibly 'dare to dream'?" If this is your current plight, I dedicate Janika's guest posting to you (and your loved ones), dear reader! She writes: This week I've become a rebellious hermit. Since last October, our family has been planning a spring break trip to visit friends and historical sites in Pennsylvania... but at the last minute, I opted to stay home.
