My sabbatical

UPDATE (31 July 2013): Many people are still interested in the blog which I wrote during the 3 1/2 month sabbatical I was privileged to take during the summer of 2011. It’s part travelogue, part reflection,  mostly fun. If you’d like, you can find it here:


“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.”
