All has been quiet here lately, and with good reason. I’m doing a lot of interesting things:
- I started teaching a high school philosophy class last week, which is a pure joy for me.
- I started actually writing my thesis a few weeks ago, and I’m a little over 3000 words in, and working on the next big sections. Hopefully I’ll be around 6-8000 words by the second week of September.
- I’ve been coaching a high school cross country team since August 1. Also a joy, but of a different sort.
- I’m prepping to teach a freshman orientation class at my university this fall.
All while doing my best to keep the centers of my life focused — just trying to be a present and loving father and husband. I fail a ton, but I’m working hard to make sure the work I do doesn’t hinder or suppress who I am.
This is a good, tiring, slightly overwhelming time for me. I get the sense that I’m moving in a direction that will be highly satisfying for me vocationally — we’ll see where I’m at by the end of 2018.
My other hope is that, while the blog will suffer a little over the coming months, that I pick it back up with full force once things settle down in late November. I love epistemology, but I imagine there will be other areas I want to explore in the future.
