But now I’m back, briefly. It’s been a complicated week: Vancouver teachers were on strike for three days, so my boy has been home with me. I’ve been working hard on a super secret project (which may not be super secret in fact, but I’m trying to err on the side of caution these days), and it’s been rough going due to aforementioned boy and the nature of the project. And my own nature, let’s be frank. If you ever need a visual image for “slow and steady”, my picture is probably as good as anything.
Spring break starts next week, which means MORE boy-at-home. We’re travelling for the second week of it, so you may find that posting is light in March and that’s just how it’s gonna be. It doesn’t mean I don’t love you; it means I have too much to do and too few brain cells with which to do it.
I leave you with what may very well be the best algorithmic Hungarian folk dancing you’ve ever seen (hat tip to my friend Josh).
Check out their other videos too. There’s nothing like mathematical folk dance! No, really. Nothing is like it.

This just makes me want to spend my next sabbatical at Sapientia University.
I know, right? Sabbaticals for everyone! Let’s go!
Okay, Rachel mon chou, I just want youto understand that for some obscure reason I cannot see what I am writing on my screen, so you must forgive any misspellings. Anyway, it has been much too long, and I don’t trust that I have your current email. Everyone else I know is in touch with you via Facebook and I am stillnot using that. Would you email me, please please, from your preferred email? So want to renew correspondence!
