So, I’m going to write about today tomorrow morning (tired and hungry). In the meantime, here is a photograph of yesterday’s dinner. It deserves its very own post.
More about yesterday.
After leaving the Coffee Perk yesterday (and now I’m back for more internet!) I walked around downtown Walla Walla for a while. There were wine tasting rooms everywhere I looked, literally. It (all the tasting rooms) was amazing. More amazing–I did not go in to any of them (at least not while downtown). Walked around…

So I haven’t blogged in like a year; don’t judge. Yesterday was our first ever SAAHE Program Pinning Ceremony at Ball State. It was very cool. I was asked to give some words on behalf of the faculty. Decided not to wing it and wrote something to read verbatim: a poem. Here is it. So…
I’ve decided that blogs are powerful, so here I am experimenting with (a new) one. Not sure what will follow, but I plan to use this space for learning mostly. Maybe a little writing.
