My dear Seanetters,
Thank you for your forbearance during my shockingly long break from blogging. Vacation was a big part of it, but I also finished the Field Guide to Beached Birds of the Southeastern United States (in the hands of the printer right now!) and I also started a new job, which has caught me up in a whirlwind of activity. I am just now beginning as an Assistant Professor in the Natural Sciences Department at Northern Essex Community College in Massachusetts. It’s where my mother got both her associate’s degree and her nursing degree, and several of my relatives are current students, so already, it feels like home.
I want to assure you that I plan to continue my direction of SEANET, and I will back in tip top blogging form starting now. I expect to be able to maintain my (sometimes inadequate) level of attention to SEANET even with my now full time teaching responsibilities. I hope you will continue to bear with me, and thanks for your patience over the years!
