January 2020

Teaching is frustrating and often chaotic, but I loved the fact that every year I got to clean the blackboards, clear my desk and look forward to a fresh start in September. January holds a similar promise at home. After the usually joyful chaos and clutter of the holidays, it’s time to put away the lights and ornaments, re-calculate my journey, and maybe pack a bit lighter for the next part of the adventure.

Early in 2019, I started to organize Coffee Talk, an eccentric and eclectic collection of random writing, into a magazine format, mainly so that I would have some goals and deadlines to keep me on the path. Everyone should pause to smell the flowers along the path, but after I retired, I found myself pausing most of the time!

Coffee Talk is still very much a work in progress, but I have been encouraged by knowing that I have a few readers, and your comments and questions have lifted my spirit and my motivation.

I am moving to a more blog-like production schedule, posting on a selected theme throughout each month instead of the once-a-month magazine style which felt familiar to my last-century mind and so was a good way for me to start.

The theme for January is “A Fresh Start.” I want to wish you a Happy 2020!
