So I haven't posted for quite a while now (since mid-June) and I miss it. I became totally burned out the last academic year - my last masochistic year as department chair at the college - something from which I'm still recovering. The beauty of this blog, however, is that it's totally mine - while people sometimes suggest topics for me to write about, I'm free to take it or leave it as I see fit (even though I end up feeling guilty when I don't post anything for a while).
Bottom line, the blog is not dead - not yet. I'm working on a few posts and will get back to it again (maybe not as prolific as I've been at times in the past, but I still have things to say).
