What’s your New Year’s resolution, dear reader?
Mine is “Let it go.” I’m going to do my best to make that phrase the overarching theme of my life in 2008. The years 2002 to 2006 were pretty rocky for me. In particular, 2006 was my annus horribilis. For each past disappointment, frustration, or betrayal, I want to repeat my new mantra, “let. it. go.”

Fortunately, 2007 has been much, much better. I am happier than I’ve ever been in my adult life. I’m in love with a fantastic person. My neighborhood is the kind of place I’ve always dreamed of living. My students and colleagues are great. I plan to start focusing more on my future than my past.
And I hope to start using this blogging venue to write more substantive posts, the way I used to back when academic blogging still seemed…how you say?…innovative.
