Hello friends,

Here we are, one week out from school starting, and these rascals are slowing me down:

Still working on syllabi and lesson plans, attending meetings, and all the busyness of the start of the school year.  This morning I served on a Q&A panel for new faculty, which was a lot of fun.  We have some really clever and eager new colleagues joining us this year.

Take a moment today to breathe, to just stare into space and think.  This is life, right now, this moment.
