Sorry for the absence all these months. Things have been very busy. In addition to getting out a few articles and starting several others, I managed to pass my dissertation proposal and am officially ABD! Now, all that is left is the dissertation itself. Also, my wife and I were recently promoted to lead facilitators at the challenge course we work at here in Virginia. Very fun stuff.
In the coming months, I will be cronicaling my dissertation for you all and heading out on a couple of trips.
