More books, fewer words, and three pictures

Further posting or thoughts of redesign or moving this blog elsewhere (or even shuttering this blog for good) have been postponed until the end of the current teaching semester. I am just too busy being a  nurturer, partner, teacher, and traveler to post much, if anything at all. 

My arms are never long enough to get everyone in the frame without squishing Cora's face, but here she is below. And her face says everything you need to know about her big, bright, boisterous personality.

And this face tells you everything you need to know about this inquisitive, introspective, and sometimes introverted personage.

So, keeping this blog on life support necessitates a word or two, so here it is, more of what I've read in the past couple of months, or since June, the date of my last post.
