This is the first summer in 26 years I have not taught classes. I am writing. And I am about to embark on a long westward driving tour, taking me all the way to New Mexico before I begin my return. I expect to continue with my writing while I travel, but I do not know if I will be updating the blog at all. (There may be some new Instagram photos, over on the side of the page.) Admittedly, that will not be much of a change; I haven’t posted much that’s new in a while. I hope to have some new material for the blog when I return (middish June). I wish everyone a terrific beginning to the summer!
