A New Season

Today--Friday, June 5--marks the end of my first week of freedom. The 2008-2009 school year was a hectic one at Fairfax Campus, but I've finally gotten a chance to slow down and catch my breath. Several people have touched base with me, concerning the status of this blog. No, I haven't quit updating it. It's just been on temporary hiatus.

Every summer with Audrey tends to get a little easier. As her cognitive skills progress, there is more for us to do together. Also, Lisa's honey-do list gets longer. Throughout the fall, winter and early spring months, I watch as my list of summer duties grows to the height of this toddler that stands near me as I write this.  Just as the toddler has grown more with every passing summer, so has the list. 

Audrey, Lisa and my friends and family around me--as well as ghosts of my past--continue to inspire me as I forge ahead with issue three of The Colorblind Art Teacher. Now that teaching has halted for a couple of months, I can focus more on this daily process. I've also gotten quite a few emails regarding the problems with my Paypal link on this very blog. I don't understand the Paypal process too much, other than when I'm playing the roll of  "consumer." Whatever the problem, I intend to have it fixed as soon as I can. Between this blog, some of the online forums I frequent and some of the networking I've done on Facebook, general interest in my mini comic has been sparked and I'd hate for anybody to miss out on the genius that is my life. 

Between errands, duties around the house, and catching up on The Wire during Audrey's naps (currently in the middle of season three), I also prepare for the 2009-2010 school year. And while I do this, Audrey spends time playing with her friends, Emaline and Thomas, practicing her jump shot and, of course, drawing. See the posted picture for her latest masterpiece.

Can't wait to see how that jump shot progresses.
