Dispatch 1: Back in the Blog Writing Saddle

July Fourth is soon upon us, giving many in our community the chance for a bit of rest, reflection, and rejuvenation. Taking time to just "be" without the pressures of a deadline is essential. Along with tending to personal items (that oil change and dental appointment I finally scheduled!), I am also taking time this July to prepare for the coming year, including a full review of my approach to personal-professional writing and social media presence. 

Clearly, it has been awhile since my last blog posting, the last of which I was discussing my trip to Berlin with the wonderful faculty and students from Saybrook University and across TCS Education System. I realized after reading these various blog entries, that this is the format I love most. Whether it's long- or short-form writing, photography, or just the quick status update, this blog is my online home allowing me to  journal my experiences as a husband, father, citizen, and university president. 

Thank you for joining me on this journey. Onward!
