I’m back in school and planning for a great year with my art students. I’ve added a plaster bust of a Greek woman to my classroom. I did the sculpture in my freshman year in college and it has sat on my father’s rolltop desk in his den since 1969. He let me take it to school under protest. But this year has a Greek theme to it.


I’m sorry that my blogging has been nonexistent of late. I have been very busy getting ready for school. I know that I sometimes make the mistake of thinking that bloggers have no other life except for their existence on their blogs. It’s similar to the notions of many school kids who are surprised to learn that their teachers live in houses with families instead of at school.


It’s good being back in school. It brings September and October that much closer. My brother and son will be home from Iraq then. Heaven protect them.
