On Leave

Yes, as the title indicates, I am on leave this spring term and therefore will not be posting to this blog as regularly as I have in the past—at least not for the next six months.  In fact, I was so focused on completing this or that administrative task during the last month that I had little to bring to this space.   I guess I left early.

By the way, a “leave” is pretty much the same thing as a “sabbatical,” though I am told that at some point Middlebury decided not to use that second term since doing so might imply that faculty were taking a break from work, as in resting on the sabbath.

So let it be known that I am not taking a break, that I am not a slacker, and that I will be spending my time away from campus engaged in meaningful work, namely a book project.   More on the last when I return to One Dean’s View . . . .

    I hope you’re working on a bodice-ripping romance novel. About a drummer in 1890s Chicago.
