And we’re back…

I have to realize that I am cheating my readers when I disappear during critical junctures.  Since I last wrote I started a new job at a school in DC.  The teaching from teaching at a college to teaching at a high school is a big enough transition in its own right, but when coupled with also transitioning from being a stay at home parent, the shift is staggering.

I miss Turtle Biscuit to say the least.  Since I’ve started work she’s started crawling and sitting up on her own.  A month ago I would’ve been the first person to see these transitions.  Now, I’m often the last.  It feels odd to get a summary of her day and her progress toward a new milestone instead of experiencing these things first hand.

There’s so much to say about this shift, and I intended on writing much of it down. However, in spite of my best intentions, I never completed the final installments in the Home Alone series nor did I put pen to paper about the feelings I had when I left Turtle Biscuit in the mornings to go to work.

All that I can say is that I will try to do better, but as I am learning in a whole new way these days, you can’t turn back time.

    Hi Ferentz,

    Looks like you have been keeping busy with your little one since we last met. It also looks like you are no longer at the New School? And are in DC now? Quite a transition. What are you teaching now?

    I was hoping to get in touch with you via email, but since you it seems that you are no longer at the New School (and that is the only address I have for you) I did not want the message to get lost in the labyrinth of cyberspace. If you could just send me a quick note from your email address I would appreaciate it.

    Here is my email, obviously the AT is meant to represent an @ sign:
