Hello from a bit of an unpredicted appointment, Good Monday morning from Geisinger-Danville. What began as a follow up appointment has turned into much more. I am continually amazed by the complexity of the human body, but even more so by how many of those intricacies we take for granted. I have learned a greatContinue reading “The Difference Between Being Important and Thinking You Are”

The Interconnectivity of Freedom
Hello on a hot September day from the Acre, It seems that the daily news has done a great deal to separate who we are as a society and it is easy to blame the news, and that goes across the spectrum. One of the things I tell my students regularly is simply this: allContinue reading “The Interconnectivity of Freedom”
What Does It Take?
Hello from about 35,000 feet and above the Colorado/Utah border, perhaps a little west. It has been some time since I’ve made a cross-country trek, either by air or land; in fact, it is the closest I’ve been to Placerville since shortly following Lydia’s passing. I believe that is the longest stretch of time awayContinue reading “What Does It Take?”
Realizing the “real” of Reality
Good early morning, Today was the first day of a new semester, the first day of a new academic year, a day of anticipation, excitement and beginnings.

It was, again, a second time for me to visit this museum and listen to the lecture ofContinue reading ” Questioning the Question”

Somos todos los Immigrantes
Buenos días de mi oficina a principios de una ruptura de Acción de gracias (Dzień dobry z mojego biura na początku przerwy Dziękczynienia or صباح الخير من مكتبي في بداية عطلة عيد الشكر، or Bonjour de mon bureau au départ d’une pause de Thanksgiving,), I realize this is quite the salutation for a beginning ofContinue reading “Somos todos los Immigrantes”
Verstehen, Comprender, Understand
Hello from the acre, I want to get a few lines written before I fall over from both mental and physical exhaustion. I should note that those two things probably affect my ability to manage the word that makes up the title of this post – all the same word; just different languages . .Continue reading “Verstehen, Comprender, Understand”
Wondering if . . .
Hello from my room after a long day (or few days), The picture is a picture scanned from the many in an ongoing, but unfinished scanning project. The project for which I am grateful and been a walk down the various roads of my life. This picture is of Copper Harbor Michigan, where I spentContinue reading “Wondering if . . .”
What constitutes privilege?
I am patriotic, but willing to address inconsistencies and inadequacies in this country. It hurts me when people consistently malign America, but are willing to receive what it has to offer.
