I’m not having another baby this summer, but I’m still taking a break from blogging. I’ll be back, at least for awhile (I’ve been reevaluating whether I can really keep this up, for months, but I keep deciding that I’ll keep writing, for at least a little longer), the first full week in August. Between now and then, we have a first birthday to celebrate, a family trip (and a work one) to Washington, DC (Sam has the National Park System map firmly in hand, to make sure we don’t miss any sites this time!), a family vacation to Lake Superior (complete with cabin on said lake), several exciting opportunities to engage social service agency clients in shaping their organizations’ advocacy agendas, some staff retreats to institute processes that integrate advocacy fully into organizations, a whole lot of door-knocking for progressive candidates (including some travel to other parts of the state, kids in tow), and, I hope, maybe some sleep.
I can’t wait to hear what your summer looks like. Please leave comments about what is restoring your soul, or feeding your passions, or just keeping you up at night (with anticipation or dread) during these hot days. You can still find me on email, Facebook, or Twitter, and I’ll see you when we’re all looking school-year-bound again!
