Another Year at BFA

September settles in. Today I met with Wood Smethurst (whom spell check suggests I call Methuselah), our esteemed headmaster at BFA, in the garden. Cicadas sang along with us as we discussed faculty assignments, mastery learning, and Shakespeare's Sonnet 73 with its implications for our mortality and what we teach our youthful students. Irony was ever present, as even the cicadas must know just weeks before the Autumn Equinox.

Here I am with all my BFA credentials. Professional life goes on a while longer...
