So there hasn't been a post on Quintessence of Dust in three months. Here are some reasons for this.
- We're in the midst of a distracting crisis at Calvin College right now. I won't talk about it here, but it's very serious and has already affected my relationship with the college.
- I recently completed a major writing project, a book that I coauthored with a colleague at Calvin. Not much else to say about that at this point.
- I've coauthored two recent review articles with my colleagues at the Van Andel Institute, and we have significantly expanded the scope of our collaboration, with a major new grant proposal in the works.
