A Change of Scenery
Coming Soon

Face it, I'm in a rut, and it started when I took on two new teaching assignments. Since it was the first time teaching these courses, there has been lots and lots of hours spent at the computer doing prep work. I have paddled little, posted rarely and taken almost no new images. Even the ones on the page today are recycled. Now, the season is changing. I hope I can change as well.

I am in the groove. I have a feel for my new schedule. Better yet, the faculty at one of the colleges has supplied me with lots of data banks to make life easier. In addition, I have located lectures and exams done when I taught the same pathophysiology course at the second university a few years back. All at once, it appears, I will have some free time during the week just like an actually retired person.

It is cool and crisp here today, and I think just maybe I will get out on the big lake today. That would be a nice change.

Paddle safe...

Just think of all the new lives you are having a positive impact on -- your students! As they always say, "If it were easy, anyone could do it." Use your time wisely, plan on "me time" every day, if even one or two hours. And, be sure to get on an exercise schedule that includes the WAC on a regular basis. Then there's the family--set your "date night" with Lady Linda yet? Ok, enough directive counseling, I've got to get back to work now ;-)

The picture of the leaf--

I first thought it was a traditional kayak overturned on some boulders. :o)
