Starting on a light note, I like that Ken shared that he was blogging and his tweet reminded me about the idea I had for this #365project.
Also, perhaps more meaningfully for me, Ken’s name came up in a conversation yesterday. I was talking with my brother-in-law who is feeling even more gloomy than I am about our country’s future under President Trump. He asked me when we’re supposed to get serious about moving to Canada. I told him that I’d certainly had such thoughts, but I’d also very lightly considered Mexico. Because weather. My brother-in-law doesn’t have such fond thoughts about life in Mexico, and he may well be right. But, I told him that I had a colleague who works at a university in Guadalajara, Mexico, and he seems happy living there. That colleague is Ken Bauer. Thus, Ken gets the incredible honor of having produced my first tweet of the day. Felicitaciones, Ken.
