It’s been a good second residency so far, different from last year in a lot of ways. The highlight: seeing everyone again. There is wisdom in the cohort idea. You really do get attached to the others in the class. I can sense some lasting relationships being formed. It’s also been great to have my family with me this time, especially this weekend. We toured Boston yesterday, with a side trip to Harvard. Today, some of us went to Lexington and Walden Pond. I’m really glad to have them here. The class has been good. There have been more lectures and less interaction so far. I looked over my notes from the first week and it is all very good material. I’m looking forward to the next few days. We should have a bit more time with Haddon. I’m glad that I have settled on a project (thesis) topic and that Haddon thinks it will work. Now I can get working on it. Tomorrow: Josiah’s sixth birthday!
