I started this blog in 2004, and then I gave it a (long) rest in 2007, while I did some spiritual regrouping and growing. In the past month, I have started up a new blog -- this time, more personal in nature. Although this blog is and was very personal in terms of the issues and concerns that I care most about. Blogging is my passion. But teaching is my first passion, and I can teach through blogging, as I did on this blog. We are all learners in this life -- learning and growing. And now is the time to return to blogging and writing after this extended hiatus. All my best as we journey on. Peace.
