To reprieve or not to reprieve? To Reprieve!!!

Greetings bloggees, students, friends, and fellow humans.

Been taking a much need break, and am feeling so much better for it.

Got several items on the agenda in the coming weeks. Looking to try some new things with two summer classes which begin Jume 10th.

Also been staying in tune with national and international news and trends.

Stay tuned for more posts, likely to pick up in a couple of weeks.
