My mom is so very upset by the passing of Tim Russert. (Seen here with my brother and mother) She got to meet him in April. I have to admit I didn't know much about the man but I'm impressed by the overwhelming response to his passing. Not just in the media, but in government, his hometown and even in sports. I get the impression that he was a guy who loved life, loved what he was doing. There is a lesson in here somewhere.

I find myself reading my "Bergen" mail and cannot help but reflect on my history with this place. As a student, staff member and more recently faculty member. I often see people who have had life-long or life-altering relationships with institutions. Ask someone who went to the University of Ohio or OSU about their experience and they light up. It's like you asked them about their family and they beam with pride.
Ask someone about BCC and usually they just smile, but it's a knowing smile. So yes, I'm smiling this morning.

Well, not exactly a race. More like a confrontation. The tortoise and the hare? Actually a snapper turtle who just refused to get out of the road. Stubborn little bugger. We finally got a shovel and convinced him to return to the woods before he became a road pizza.

I started teaching at a 2nd institution now. (Thomas Edison State College) I'm teaching an introduction to photography course on-line. I did not get to design the course but have been asked about making some modifications. I'm looking forward to that. But what really excites me is that I've been asked to teach a history of photography course on-line.
