We moved to Connecticut

I don’t know how I drifted out of updating my blog, but it just occurred to me to try to get back into updating it. Here is a message I shared with many of my friends this past July.

Dear Friends,

I’m always terrible at making these announcements in a timely fashion. Bethany, Owen, Ilana, and I are moving in August, and I am starting a new job, but still teaching physics, at a private, pre-K through 12, day school in Danbury, CT. Owen will be starting school there in the fall as well, which he is pretty excited about.

For the past four years, I have been teaching physics to some of the smartest, hardest working, young people in the state of Maine, and it has been wonderful. I often enjoyed my previous line of work in full-time-research plasma physics, but teaching here and being a part of this learning community has been the most satisfying work I’ve ever done in my life. During my time here I have had great colleagues and students, I have become a father, doubled the size of my family, learned a lot about myself, and figured out what I want to be, perhaps what I am supposed to be, for the next few decades. I am so grateful for all of these things.

However, for a host of complicated reasons, the time for a change has arrived. Unless we currently live in the same town as you, or you live in Quebec, we will probably live closer to you after the move. (See map for details). I hope that we can see many of you a bit more often than we have while living on the northern frontier.

    Welcome back to the blogosphere from someone else whose presence here can also be spotty. πŸ™‚

    You should blog again! Thanks for leaving a comment on mine. I tried to reply in my email but I’m not sure it got to you. Anyway, it was good to hear from you. I hope you and your family are doing well. My brother lives in Boston area now, so I have reason to visit New England πŸ™‚ IT’s lovely.
