Congratulations, Peter, on new Son and teaching opportunity. You are so right about how feeling "unproductive" can be anxiety-ridden for people like us, even when we have good excuses. ( I have been going through some health issues that are soon to be resolved well.) Teaching is such a great opportunity to put on "new eyes" as Proust says. "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." (BTW I saw Arkansas in a new light when I finally watched season three of True Detective. Although it is tough story for someone with kids it is worth a view for the amazing Mahershala Ali.) Good luck with all!

Thank you! I appreciate you always speaking up for the work, and for your support.

Looking forward to the next Arkansas trip already - I know so little of the state in anyway, from popular culture or literature or friends or anything. It's been fun. Taking the opportunities as they come to see the country, or more.
