Hello Again

Wow, it's been almost 5 years since my last blog posting! What inspired me to begin again? Actually, it was my accountant...

In 2016, I published a book, Using Images to Teach Critical Thinking Skills. Since then, I've been collecting modest royalties and deducting professional expenses, including conference costs, on my income tax. Last year, I just traveled for personal reasons, my only relevant deduction being ALA membership renewal. I joked with my H & R Block person that I wished I could write off my upcoming trip to France. She told me I could, if it involved research for another book.

Hmmm. The last time I saw Paris was in 1968, as a 21-year-old college student. Things in my life, Paris, and the world in general, have changed a bit since then. I've decided to start blogging about my memories and, eventually, the actual trip. Perhaps I'll be inspired to write a biographical piece, or some sort of fiction, and earn those deductions. At any rate, it will be fun reminiscing!
