*+-Sharon Kyle: This picture of my parents was taken in August 2004. They were dancing at my daughter’s wedding. They look like a happy couple but at the time, my father was living in Maryland and my mother, California. They hadn’t been married since the 1970’s.
*+-Sharon Kyle: Today is the day we honor our fathers. Many would say I’ve chosen a peculiar way to honor mine. I won’t be having dinner with him. In fact, I will not see him today even though he lives 60 miles away. I will be in a class all day – a California bar review class – as I prepare to take the California Bar Exam. I am a middle-aged woman who has had three major jobs and is now beginning a fourth as a people’s lawyer (after passing the bar) and my father is one of the biggest reasons I push myself the way I do.
