I have not blogged for a long time. I am ready to begin a new slant, a new focus. I can tell from my lack of entries that I am going a different direction. The timing is right. I have moved to a new city, and I am on a winter road trip. So, pick up your imaginary suitcase and go with me on this new journey.
Many of you may know that I have been trying to write a memoir of my first year of teaching in New Orleans. Den and I integrated schools in 1967. We did not know we were “token” integrators, but through my research in writing this book, I have discovered many surprising things about that year. So, I am going to merge the old with the new. I am going to write some of my stories, my findings, my understandings, and frustrations of writing this book. I would cherish your remarks, your questions, and even your evaluations if this story holds your interest. I hope the blog will be more interactive this year. I am going to have to depend on you. I value your comments. I need your reactions. I hope this new format is interesting to you and helpful in completing my book. OK, grab your bag and let’s go.
