Return to Normalcy

Greetings are long overdue: returning to normalcy took a bit longer than expected. Noted in the last blog (9 months ago) I anticipated the interim dean assignment concluding during summer and it did. Since then my biggest challenge was getting back in shape, losing some weight (gained over ten pounds this past year), and cataloguing neglected photos. So far so good: running again and exercising more, lost some pounds, and catalogued a few thousand photos (but thousands to go and more coming soon). In a few days Susan and I depart for Vietnam and Cambodia – a nearly three-week adventure long anticipated. We’ll visit Hanoi, Halong Bay, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), cruise the Mekong River for seven days, enter Cambodia, and conclude with two days in Siem Reap experiencing iconic Ankgor Wat. Looking forward to sharing photos via the blog shortly after our return in mid November. At that time I’ll also add some photos from an awesome weeklong rafting trip in the Grand Canyon (June). Below is a sample of some recent photos. If interested in locating prints, two Laramie galleries are now displaying some of my cards and posters: The Frame Plant and Artisans’ Gallery. Contact me for more information.

We’re having a BEAUTIFUL fall 🙂

[Note: John Kambutu and I are once again coordinating a Kenya Wildlife Safari in June 2017, visit the Up and Coming section of the blog https://michael-day.org/up-and-coming/kenya-wildlife-safari-2013/for more information. Can only accommodate a dozen participants so if interested email me at mikeday@uwyo.edu.]

    Such a treat to hear that you are slowly returning to the former normalcy of retirement and will soon head out on another fun excursion with Susan. As a UW Ed grad, I appreciated your retirement detour by making sure the COE got back into calmer waters. Job well done, my friend! Will touch base with you when you return from SE Asia. Safe travels…will look forward to seeing your photos! 😘
