A Picture from the Winter when I needed a sweater and a jacket and I had my winter “fur”. I am glad that my students found this picture so amusing.
Hello from the Fog and Flame It has been a crazy week. The power went out on campus and they closed the university that afternoon. The temperatures have been in the mid 90s and it is humid. My air conditioners have been running continuously. In addition, the amount of work facing me right now seemsContinue reading “So Much Work . . . So Little Time”
Hello from the Houston Hilton North, I did not plan to be in Houston this morning, I had planned to be to my destination, although it was a circuitous way to arrive, I had booked the cheapest ticket I could, so I knew I would be in airports for the day. However, when I endedContinue reading “‘Houston, We have a Problem””
Good late evening (almost midnight), It has been a very long day. I left the house this morning at 7:00 a.m. and I got home about 11:25. I have taken a shower and now, to try to make sure I am putting in my “blogging time”, I am posting. This evening both sections of myContinue reading “The Longest Day”
Hello on Saturday afternoon, We are in the middle of the long holiday weekend and I am quite sure my students think they are the only people in the world required to work ‘on’ the weekend. Well, they are not quite accurate. I have been working a good part of the weekend. I have blogsContinue reading “Working ‘on” the Weekend”

When I was in Wisconsin, it seemed that I could get things out for publication on a somewhat regular basis. ThatContinue reading “Writing While Teaching Writing”
Good evening from my house on Lightstreet, Today was the first day of class for the third session of summer school. It is a tough road when one is cramming 14 weeks worth the work into 6. Furthermore, when you have two classes as well as other requirements, it is even more difficult. What IContinue reading “Summer School”
Good Afternoon, I am sitting in a new coffee shop in Bloomsburg named “Fog and Flame”. One of my students just teased me saying, “just what you need, another coffee shop.” I guess there is a lot of truth to the statement that I am “a creature of habit”. I actually write the majority ofContinue reading “Half-way Through”
Good Morning from the corner of Starbucks (the second one here on campus), I had great intentions of writing more systematically for a couple of reasons: first, to merely get me writing, which seems so hard to find the time to do; and second, to have a chance to get thoughts out of my headContinue reading “Time is Flying”
