Prince L Back in Blogharness for 09: Resolved to Work for More Love, More Peace, More Justice
In our last royal post — the day after the presidential election — we noted that after a day of flying the flag, it would be back to work. Obviously we didn’t mean blogging!
But the Prince has indeed been working hard, catching up with work at his day job as a historian of medicine and a busy academic. The first week of December, I went to London to take part in a workshop on the neurological patient in history. This was my second international conference of the semester — the first being to the lovely German city of Mainz in Sept. Preparing for two major presentations set me way back in my quotidian teaching and administrative duties — which all caught up to and just slammed me the last few weeks of 08. And then there was advent and the holidays, and the need to spend more time with family.
So, lest anyone have worried, let it be known that Prince L will remain committed to this humble blog as an ongoing statement of his responsibilities and commitments as a Catholic and a citizen in 21st century America. And as it is customary to begin the year with statements of resolve, let us summarize those responsibilities and commitments as a resolution to work in whatever small ways we can for more love, more peace, and more justice in this broken world.
But when the pressures of time force me to make choices among these various responsibilities and commitments, this blog will of course be among the first thing to go!
