I have had a number of direct inquiries as to whether something was wrong, as I have been writing so infrequently.
Nothing is wrong, either with me or with my wife Leaves on the Current.
I have been very busy with school-related tasks, as one semester has ended and a new one has begun, with my getting almost 60 new students.
I am trying to honor some previous commitments for writing, especially of book reviews.
I have been in discussion about a guest speaking opportunity at a major graduate school of education
There are political things happening in my neck of the woods - I live in Jim Moran's Congressional District, and we may have as many as 11 Democrats competing to replace him - I know most, have made up my mind whom to support, and will be writing about that, but I was already doing some volunteering on behalf of my favored candidate
On several occasions I have had to devote the better part of a day to helping a dear friend
I continue to try to get healthy by doing yoga as well as changing my diet. I attend classes 4 or more times per week, and do some practice on my own. That will not change, and may somewhat limit my future participation here: it is unlikely that during tthe school week you will see me post 4 times in one day!
I continue to read.
While I have seen things that under different circumstances I might have taken the time to blog, in the immediate past I had more important priorities.
And unless someone in the government decides to haul me away, you can ignore the "YET" in my title - I have no intention of going anywhere.
This site does fine without my posting every day.
I am honored to be a member of the community.
I am grateful for the concern of those who not seeing me active chose to discreetly inquire.
I hope this allays any fears or concerns.
