Notable items from this past month’s exploits include my summer trip to Iowa (which also represented my newish car’s first road trip of notable length), my parents’ subsequent visit to Colorado, POSSIBLY too much political news (FB thinks I’m a terrible person), POSSIBLY not nearly enough sports news, and strides in getting back into making. The first week of the semester is preceded by a week of faculty meetings… Which is preceded by the week before the week before the semester of Chair / Dean meetings… All signs point to making the most of the waning twilight of summer. See you in September.
