Spring this year

Even in Vancouver, I am amused that a university semester that starts the first week in January and ends in early April is called “Spring.” But at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, often enough it feels like spring to me, with a beautiful bloom of new students in my classrooms, and all sorts worthy projects starting to grow. I spent most of New Year’s Day traveling, and I expect to travel more this year than I ever have in the past – when I’m not teaching. And I hope to be writing a ton, about this leaving Vancouver and about coming back to it, as well as about my reliably unquenchable obsessions. Please stay tuned.

Tomorrow’s going to be a good day: Getting together on the Surrey campus with my fellow School of Business Chairs for a lunch-time meeting, then seeing my own Applied Communications department colleagues in the afternoon. Back in Vancouver later on, I’ll be meeting a former student, with whom I’ve worked on several very cool media initiatives, for dinner on Commercial Drive. Then home to pack for a short, happy trip across town to see beautiful friends this weekend.
