Our three day journey back up the east coast of America and into the bosom of my familiar Long Island has finished. Once again, the wife and I find ourselves back in our cozy apartment, it only slightly the worse for wear due to the three felines roaming unobstructed for a full week plus two days. A warm gratitude extended to all family and friends whom we visited during our trip. If there is a better time to see as many people that we hold dear as we have over the past little while, than I am at a loss for when that would be.
As far as the New Year, I am glad that the Earth continues it's orbit around my favorite star relatively undisturbed. As far as resolutions go, I have a few. The most important as far as you are concerned is my hope to recruit a few more contributors and some shiny new features. Maybe you are interested?
Back in New York--for all of its warts, I still wouldn't trade this bustle for anything that I have seen recently. And as for my students, I'm perfectly happy to spend another 60 or so hours without them.
Enjoy your first of 52 fridays in 2009.
