I have been completely engulfed by my new job as an academic coach and supervisor. The job is an intense learning experience; it’s challenging all my conceptions of control and chaos. I like some of it, and some parts I dislike intensely. This is a good sign.

What this means, though, is I have been struggling to keep up with the rest of my life. Reading for pleasure is on hold at the moment. Exercise, however, is not. Writing is also on hold. I believe this program, once it’s running on all cylinders, will leave me time for these other activities.

On a more personal note, my future father-in-law continues to fight for his life. His is a grim battle. The type of cancer he has is rare and insidious. So when I’m not working, or doing life tasks such as buying food and going to the bank, my energy is absorbed by this concern.

One quick note, however. If you’re looking for a compendium of worthwhile blogs, check out DeepBlog. They’ve got quite a smorgasbord of good links, and I’m honored to one among them. They write:
