“I notice that Oronte Churm has gone silent (or at least hasn't written in propria persona for a while),” a reader e-mails. “Which may mean you have other fires to tend at the moment….”
Indeed I have had things to tend to, such as getting some rest and exercise, watching my boys grow up, beginning a new semester, reading actual books, scribbling, and traveling professionally (see pic). Thank you for noticing.
And I promise you that as soon as I’m done editing others’ fine guest-posts to my perversely specific tastes, I’m going to consult a law dictionary and find out what in propria persona means. After all, scire tuum nihil est, nisi te scire hoc sciat alter.
Still, you haven’t misread my relative absence here. After five wonderful years with Inside Higher Ed, there are some changes afoot at the blog and at Churm House, which I’ll announce in the next few days.
In the meantime, as always, thank you (all) for reading. De gustibus non est disputandum.
