Premises of the blog:
- I make no promises; I offer only hopes.
- I hope to write at least monthly, beginning with my year-long sojourn in France (start date: tomorrow).
- I hope to include many many photos.
- I hope to share insights and reflections, not to the exclusion of funny stories, announcements, and recipes.
- I hope to continue having personal contact with many of you checking this blog--to not leave you to the unsatisfactory ambiguities of mass communication.
- I hope to write sometimes in French.
- I hope...[please fill in a hope you have for me in the coming year].
