Long time, no posts

There is no possible way to catch up almost a year's time.  Suffice it to say that it's been a great year, one with some profound changes.  My ASA consulting practice is now seasonal, summers only.  I am teaching full time at the University of Washington's Information School.  Six courses over three quarters, as well as a service component and a range of new activities as well.

The family is all doing well.  Cassandra is on her way to another Grammy with Phoenix Chorale. Sabrina's Villa Siena is booked continuously for special events.  James is teaching and finishing his Ph.D. dissertation at the State University of New York at Albany.  Leroy is pleased that I've joined him as faculty at the UW, and he continues his own work teaching, publishing and speaking.

That's about it.  We are extremely grateful for our happiness, and for the orderly nature of our life.  Though the house got renovated ten years ago, it still feels fresh and special.

Here's a few photos, one of which is a watercolor I painted in 2014, from which a detail was extracted for our holiday greeting card.
