Wondering where I’ve been?

I haven’t written much recently, partly because my post on libraries and the digital future took a fair bit of energy out of me, but mostly because I’ve been enjoying the (finally) beautiful weather here in Boston, as well as my last bit of time off before the summer term begins. I’ve been tending to my window boxes and houseplants, experimenting with homemade pizza (up next: homemade bread), and enjoying the fact that I have tons of time for pleasure reading (the fascinations of the moment include various gardening books, Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, and George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones). There will definitely be some new posts soon, and I especially look forward to writing about the repair techniques I’ll be learning in my Collection Maintenance class, but sometimes it’s important to take a step back and smell the flowers, as it were.

A single Vinca minor flower has opened. Senecio cineraria 'Silverdust' and Solenostemon hybrida 'Redhead' are in the background.

It’s true that I could easily get lost in a book or a beautiful garden, but don’t worry. I won’t be gone long.
