Hey...don't I have one of those?

So here I am, a little over a year after starting my own blogging experience, just remembering that I even have a blog. Life got in the way--in the intervening time I have moved, had a baby, and am now planning a cross country move. My husband was offered his dream job; with great trepidation, I have encouraged him to accept it even though it means moving from our family and loved ones and taking a cut in pay is the perfect job for him and he will make a difference in the world doing it, so how could I not support him?

The thing that brought me back to was a post on the forums at Another member, Kestrel, is using this same blog to record her TTapp journey ( ),. I though, "Hey, don't I have one of those too?" And sure enough, here it was, patiently waiting for me. Which brings me back to one of the fundamentals of Adult Education--it is always there for the learner when the learner is ready, just like that old adage, "When the learner is ready, the teacher appears." That is the hallmark (or should be) of Adult Ed.

So here I am.

Inspired by Kestrel, I want to catalogue my journey, TTapp and otherwise. Somehow doing this makes me feel like I still have a voice, like I still matter. And perhaps, maybe just perhaps, be a balancing voice to my brother's, who seems to have become quite the cynic about our family and growing up years.

So sit back, enjoy the ride, because I guarantee it will be interesting.
