It's been more than a year. Wow.
In that span of time, we've stressed ourselves out royally-- moved from Kansas to Texas-- transitioned from a family with littles to a family with (barely) school-aged children. We don't nap at all, now; instead, we homeschool. At night I teach online courses for a graduate program in history.
I do want to continue this blog-- but it will have to change, too, as I find that my reasons and motives (as well as my schedule) have imperceptibly shifted. Re-reading much of what I've written, I can barely recognize my own voice! And that's a weird feeling.
Anyway, I'm choosing to break the silence with this post, which I place here for my own motivation. Hopefully it signals a semi-fresh start!
