"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." -- William Butler Yeats

 I've had a bit of a spring break.  I spent four days in New York City, speaking at a risk conference and in meetings around future publications and conferences.  I managed to complete annual checkups with my doctors, set up a new trainer who starts this week, and have a lovely day with my sister at the Museum of Modern Art and the Manhattan St. Patrick's Day parade.  That's a lot to accomplish in two weeks, especially when I was grading final papers as well.

Classes for spring quarter begin this week.  I'm teaching on Thursday evenings and managing the Master of Science in Information Management (MSIM) internship program.  Additionally, I've got deadlines on another article for The Risk Universe, final comments on a risk guide for state transportation departments, funded by the National Transportation Board, and the outline of a chapter on conduct risk to be written for a new book on that topic in the Risk Books series from England.

So the fire is lit in me, to be passed on  to my students this quarter.  I have never done just one thing at a time.  The possibilities seem endless.
