Looking Back

While on my computer-less vacation, I took some time to think about my writing.  "What am I doing with this blog?" I wondered aloud to Rob one night over dinner.  "I don't feel like I'm . . . getting anywhere.  The point was to have a place to put my writing, but now that I have it, I don't like what I'm filling it with."

"Really?" he responded, in that Socratic tone all teachers love.  "None of it?"

This made me sulk a little, but he'd made a good point.  There are a few entries I'm proud of.  And when I read over them, it's interesting to see that very few of them have to do with teaching, except tangentially.

To quote the catechism, What does this mean?!  I'm not sure.  But I know I like writing about my life, whether or not it's directly related to my career.  I know it doesn't make sense to limit yourself to the point where you can't write what you enjoy.  So if you see less social commentary and more personal vignettes from now on, don't be alarmed.  But do tell me what you think!
