January – June 2022

The Move Overseas

I left the USA on July 4 headed to Munich via Istanbul and Frankfurt, in order to see the Passion Play in Oberammergau (Germany). After the play, I trained to Vienna and then Budapest before taking a final flight to Istanbul, where I plan to base until at least Christmas, or longer if I can obtain a short-term residency permit. This has been a most unusual trip in that poor health (bronchitis) and extreme heat (over 100°F) have prevented me from doing most of the things I had planned. So it goes. All we can do is play the best hand with the cards that we’ve been dealt.

The Big Wedding

My only niece Gabrielle Carrier married Ade Akinsanya during Memorial Day Weekend in Georgia. There were two wedding ceremonies: Yoruba (Nigerian) on Thursday and “traditional American” on Sunday.

School Ends/Retirement Begins

After 32 years of (full-time) teaching, I finally retired.

Easter Weekend 2022

I had a flight voucher about to expire, so I flew down to Oaxaca, Mexico, for Easter.

Spring Break 2022

For Spring Break 2022, I spent the week in El Salvador and Guatemala. Here are a few pics. Enjoy!

Tartuffe (February 2022)

Moliere’s Tartuffe was the last theatre production that I directed at Incarnate Word. What a fun show!
