So… I really dropped the ball there. But, what’s the use in looking back?! I’ve got updates.
In the past 3 years since returning to work from my sabbatical, I’ve done a lot. I’ll list them off for you (as chronologically as I can) so you can catch up.

I continued to teach Letterpress 1: Metal and Wood Type classes as Spudnik Press
I got a new bike. It’s a Linus.
