Greetings, Anwar! You're cute. :) I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

Hey Anwar:

Thanks for the words of appreciation and congrats on getting into the EdD program! I didn't know you were going into the education field (I do teacher professional development in addition to youth leadership development in high schools, so this is near and dear to my heart), which school are you going to?

Hi Anwar,
Thanks for the hello.
My Dad died last week after a long period of suffering and decline. He had a good life. Some thoughts on that here.
Home life is mixed bag. What can I say.
Off work for study for a couple months. That is wonderful.
So much for me. How are you doing? Your photos are great. The dancers are truly beautiful.

Hi Anwar,
Thanks for the "hi". I've been a bit down. Work work work work work; partner on vacation in Shanghai, so on my own for a little while. Well, what can I do? Don't let it bother you, it'll pass.
Anyway, hope YOU are doing well!

Hi Anwar,
Glad you replied.
The West is a big place - like talking about the East, although probably not as much variation as there is between, say, NY and Savannah. I tried several times to move West, mostly to either San Diego or San Francisco, but that wasn't my fate. When I finally did, it was to a college town in Oregon, then Portland, now suburb of Portland. I felt like I came "home", it was so "me". But we are all different.

You have a long life ahead, nothing wrong with trying different places and ideas. Eventually. I think most people find what suits them most.

It funny, I had a friend who moved from Malaysia to WA state. He has seen so many pictures of the Pacific NW, and thought it would all be lush Fir forests. No one told him that was only on the Western side of the state. He wound up in Pullman WA, in the high desert, about as not-lush as possible, and hundreds of miles from the Fir forests. BUt eventually he did find his way to what he wanted.

Happy Equinox to you Anwar. Keep away from the bunny rabbits, though.

Hey Anwar, Any news about grad school? And how's your semester going? We just started our spring break, so I am busy catching up on all the work that has been accumulating for the last few weeks.

Otherwise, I'm hoping to finish my book this week--what a relief it will be to have this burden off my shoulders. If you get a spare minute, let me know how life's treating you.

Talk to you later,

Hey Anwar,
You'd said you were interested in contributing to the global atheist experiences project I'm working on, but I'm not sure which of your blogs you wanted to share. I quite appreciated the one titled "Objectivity Manifests Misrepresentation." One of the comments below it stated that you were working on something similar regarding atheism; I look forward to it. Is that (future?) blog the one you mean to contribute for the book project?
As a totally random aside, my brother-in-law's name is Anwar.

Dear Anwar,
Yes, I would definitely appreciate your contribution to the essay project. I want to include as many different voices as possible, including voices from within various American communities. Are you interested in submitting the blog you mentioned, or adapting it for the project, or...?
Thanks very much for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you again,

Heyyyy! I'm doing well - classes have started up in full swing again, so I'm glad to actually have work to do! How's everything up North?

Hey Anway,
Holiday was OK. Didn't travel, that helped. Had a bit of a scare due to my Dad, he's on hospice and we thought he might not make it, but he has rallied. How was your holiday?

Even here, it was a very close vote. Originally I was unhappy with the politicians for slightly whimping out and making it "marriage in everything but name", but now I think they were wise. Calling it "marriage" would have resulted in it not passing. It would only have taken a couple of percentage points for it to fail.Delete Comment

A lot of those things are why I wound up living here. I was kind of a granola guy already, so I thought why not? There is a line, though, in the Cascade mountains. W of the Cascades is the land of Starbucks, Microsoft, nontheism, etc. E of the Cascades you might as well be in Indiana! :-)

Actually, WA state is the only state that has put same-sex benefits up to a popular vote and had it pass. The WA domestic partner law has all of the same rights and obligations as marriage, spelled out in law. This passed in Nov. this year. Its "same as marriage" but isn't called that.

Sorry for the delay, Anwar. Answer to your question - my week was very hectic. I also worked through most of the weekend, via internet. Checked into A!N now and then. I gotta find a better way, we only live once and it doesn't get easier. Hope you are weathering the NY Senate's clusterfuck. I hate how screwed up so many people are. I better not start into that, I'll start cussing some more. Have a great day.

Thanks for the comments - very flattering! We'll have to talk about urban education sometime - I'd love to hear what you have to say. My philosophical background is a little different (strictly Anglo-American analytical, with some Pragmatism thrown in), but I occasionally explore the continentals... =D

Happy thanksgiving Anwar!

Oh no, I missed it! Happy birthday anyway!

Hi Anwar,Im OK, yourself?
Short days get me down. That and more intense schedule. Other half just returned returned from China. Now we'll have to get used to each other again :-) Home office is done, furniture in place, blooming plants in the windows. That helps.
