Missed it by THAT much!
SO this is what I get for going on a cruise, huh?

When Last I Wrote
I was just about to leave for my first cruise, where I was to be co-teaching with Drew Emborsky on the Holland America ship Ms. Westerdam for Craft Cruises.

All was going well - it was a most wonderful cruise - until I caught what appeared to be the worst cold in the history of human kind.  

I had to cancel one of my days of classes (Drew was kind enough to invite my students into his classes and they had a wonderful time!) and spent most of the trip in my room having my meals brought to me so I wouldn't infect anyone else.  

And, before you ask, no - it wasn't Swine Flu.  I had myself checked back home in MN, and I'm dandy - just a bad, bad cold.

But, colds being what they are and my lungs being what they are (filled with massive scar tissue from severe asthma and repeated trips through Bronchitis-land) this cold settled in and I found myself unable to breath, move, sleep - well, I've already moved into the sphere of too much information, so I'll just stop here.

This is my roundabout way of explaining why I didn't get my April newsletter out in April, and now we've moved on to May and it's time for a fresh start.  Me and the crocii.


I would LOVE to meet you!
I've limited my engagements in my upcoming OH / PA / NH / Canada trip, and I'm not sure when I'll be doing another road trip like this, so if you miss out you only have yourself to blame!  Here's where I'll be:

I've set up a lovely Google agenda of all my teaching dates which you can access by clicking here. You can change the view to Agenda for a list of my classes, I think it's a bit easier to read than the calendar grid.


Across The Pond
In August I fly to the UK for 5 teaching engagements all over Scotland, Wales and England.  I'm incredibly excited about this - I'll be taking Gerry with me for the first week, then he returns home to be Mr. Mom while I continue for another week of teaching.  

Check the grid below for detailed info on any of my teaching engagements, and - as always, feel free to email me for more information on any of my classes or engagements.
