Re-Starting (and ending) things

September 5, 2017 at 10:35 pm 1 comment

It’s been a long time since I’ve put anything up here and a lot has happened.

But the main thing relevant to this blog is that I’m engaged in more activities that are identified with ‘sustainability’ and it might be worth sharing some events, milestones and thoughts along the way.  Here’s a quick summary.

As I begin my 31st year as a university professor, my wife (of somewhat more years than my career) and I have just sold our home, a place we’ve shared with both daughters and all of our dogs and have no intention of owning a home for the foreseeable future.

Next week, before we sign away this property, we’re hosting an estate sale in which we are shedding a significant portion of our worldly possessions. Pretty much everything that didn’t fit into a 10×15 storage unit will be someone else’s next  6 days from now.

After a few months in an extended Air BnB (more on that later), we jet off to Australia and New Zealand for  visiting scholars gigs at the University of Melbourne and University of Auckland.

When we return in July of 2018, we may find ourselves being part of Boise State’s Living Learning Communities and move into one of our residences halls, which is part of a concerted effort to learn and live about sustainable living.

Which is why I’m re-starting the blog.

Stay tuned.
