While a new semester of undergrad teaching is always exciting, in January I also managed to write a good deal and cap off the month with a lively portrait session. Here are a few previews from the shoot with singer/songwriter Mike Meo and bandmate Glen Roberts.
Later this month, I’ll be traveling to sunny San Marcos as a guest of Texas State University’s Acorn Symposium. The conference organizers invited me to present some philosophical reflections on the experience of building Illinois Speaks, Illinois Humanities’ state-wide civic engagement program.
It’s mildly embarrassing to admit this will be my first trip to Texas, a Gulf Coast state this Floridian has seen from the water but never managed to visit! I hope to bring some photos and stories to share with you from the symposium.
