An item in The New York Times recently about Ellen Galinsky, the president of the Families and Work Institute, included the following:

"Ms. Galinsky also carries a list of words -- 36 so far -- as candidates to replace the term 'balance.' For her book, she wants a better term to describe the blurring of boundaries between work and family. She asks people for possibilities whenever she can but so far hasn't hit on the right answer."

Can we help Ms. Galinsky out? I'll see to it that she learns of suggestions made in Post & Riposte.
