Notes from the Northwoods Vol. 1

For the past year-plus, I've been writing Reflections posts on this site. Partly as an exercise in meeting my deadlines and writing honestly. Partly as an update to friends and family.

Reflecting on Summer 2019

Every summer begins the same way - an overwhelming sense of excitement mixed with trepidation over how insanely busy summers tend to be.
