Matt: "I can't believe it's almost August."
Joann: "How does that make you feel?"
Matt: "It makes me feel like I didn't have a summer. I had a Clara."
I've been a bit absent from this blog for the last month or so. This picture captures my excuse.
Clara has been the most welcome inconvenience in my life, dramatically altering my schedule and rhythm and priorities, challenging me in new ways, yet bringing indescribable joy.
That is, unless you're a parent, or can accurately imagine what it's like to be a parent even if you're not one...then maybe you can describe it perfectly adequately and it's not so indescribable.
Sure to resume blogging once the school year starts up in a few weeks and the next exciting season begins! Life as a PhD student at an interreligious school in Berkeley is sure to provide plenty of fodder for blogging.
After all, the last time Joann and I were in the bay area we saw two 40-something men walking down the street in broad daylight, wearing nothing but socks and flip-flops.
