An All-Consuming Work In Progress

Yes, it's been way too long since I've written here on the blog. It's not so much the pressures of my all-too time-consuming job. It actually has more to do with the fact that there are simply too many things to write about. When I started this a year ago, things in my life had just shifted from neutral to first gear. Stuff was happening, but it was at a rate where I could stand back and take note of it all. I would like to be in a place where I can share some anecdotes about some of my students and colleagues. There is simply too much to say right now.

What about my sketchbook works? Illustrations? You make a good point, Devoted Reader. I used to make a habit of scanning a fair number of my drawings at a single time. Therefore, when I find that I have little time (or energy) in which to write, I simply sit down and post a drawing. The problem with this is that, sooner or later, the drawings I've scanned and stored have all been used, thus forcing me to sit down and scan a whole lot more. One thing I will never have is a shortage of sketchbook pages (2-3 sketchbooks a year since around 1995. Do the math). So just so long as these journals don't see a tragic fate, I'll always have something to post here. Just be sure and poke me with a stick if you don't hear anything from me in a while. Special thanks go out to Pete for taking the liberty.

As I sit and write this, it's Labor Day. September 3rd. Brandon and Paige are coming over in a few hours to grill some chicken and dogs with us. They'll have Little Ainsley ("Applesauce") with them. Audrey's pal. Jeff and Gaby should be returning from Florida, where they were visiting Gaby's sister, Lorena, her husband, Sergio, and their new baby, Marcelo. Matt, Kathy and the kids were out over the weekend and returned home yesterday. Today is Matt's birthday so send him a card.

Hope all is well with you, Devoted Reader.

Happy belated birthday Matt. I hope your raspberries were delish.
