He's back, and blogger than ever!

iPod morning commute music: Bob Dylan, Before the Flood, disc 2 (1974)

Not much to say about this one. Dylan and The Band, live, with Dylan reinventing his songs and The Band playing gamely along. The Band has a set of their own stuff, followed by an acoustic Dylan solo set. This really set the pattern for Dylan's future never-ending tour. Very good, unless you don't like Dylan.

I'm back. It's been a helluva start to the academic year! The British kids and their teachers came on the 2nd and returned home on the 15th. It was a very successful program, but I regret missing the first 2 days of classes. Things are also heating up with the voter registration gig. I'm beginning to feel that political pulse again. I'm hyped.

This week has been busy trying to catch up on all the paperwork I should have done last week, coupled with lessons. In a way, it's kind of exhilarating to be so busy, on some edge, and yet everything works. My new students seem nice, my new textbooks good. Of course, it has only been a week.

Yesterday, our school had their welcome assembly for new students, with school clubs performing, trying to recruit new members. My club, ESS (English Speaking Society), did a very good job, and I'm hopeful we'll get some good new members.

Finally, sorry for the lack of posts over the last 3 weeks, but I hope you understand. I'll try my best to keep this blog up and running from now on.
