Why, hello there! It’s been a while since my last post. Life has been busier than usual. Andrew had his public thesis defense in April and is now officially Dr. Sempere. He had a show go up two weeks later and fell off the stage and broke his heel on opening night. Of course he still ran sound that night and continued to work on the show while in a cast. Then we headed to the U.S. for three weeks on what was a rather insane trip — TX, CA, and MA, so three time zones, two weddings, two big backyard parties thrown by parents, and one college reunion. And yes, we traveled with a very mobile toddler with one parent who had a broken foot. It was insane, but we survived. We got home on Sunday and have been catching up since!
Two quick updates:
— I am planning at long last to stop cross-posting to LJ. If you’d like to keep following this blog (and I hope you do — I promise to post more often!), you can subscribe at anindita.org either via the RSS feed or by email. I’ll take the LJ link down at the end of the month.
— Before leaving, I had a piece published in Medium’s The Message about teaching Humanities in the middle school that Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended. It was a tough piece to write, but it seems to have struck a chord with many people who are just as confused and dismayed by both what happened and the death sentence. Please check it out.
