catching up really fast.

I just felt nostalgic, and like writing, and went back to read our first post, here. It has been a long time since I’ve written much, because I’ve been a little busy going to grad school.


It still feels weird to say it, and as my friend Stephanie Mahin puts it, I feel a case of impostor syndrome. But I’m starting the dissertation-writing process. And Kevin’s working for the whole big UNCGA thing, helping get an inter-campus online university going, which is incredibly exciting. Many changes, much still to come…it’s invigorating, but in some ways feels strange. Remember the way you felt in your twenties, roaring to go, seeing nothing but the future ahead of you, believing deeply in your dreams? Yep. But now my joints also ache most of the time, and the face in the mirror doesn’t always look as energetic as my mind feels.

This house helps. Waking up way too early (3am, 4am,…tonight 2am) and drinking coffee, just listening to the house, the crickets outside, talking to the cats. We still don’t have a finished hallway, which bugs me much more than it bugs him (hint, hint), but things are looking up and I’m looking at an eventful year.

A couple pictures from the past year help illustrate the sorts of things that have been happening here at Fred, and with his people….sometimes intentionally, sometimes not.
