Why does humanity at large continue to plod along the same, old track? When we’re pubescent, we rebel against authority, though have the choice to acquiesce. When we’re middle aged, we have crises, though we are perfectly capable of avoiding the Mercedes dealership.

One Past Fallbrook will discuss immaturity, growing up and death, with particular interest in the idiosyncrasies of children, teenagers and adults. As a school photographer, I’m in a more-or-less unique position to deal with nearly every one of these age groups in every day of my work, and all of my friends need just as much maturing as I do.

There will be no dearth of material.

On the Tenure Track had a marvelous run, but as I turned away from education, my focus did as well. No doubt that by now readers had noticed a marked decline in on-topic blogging, if there are any readers left. Maybe I’ll return my focus to education, someday, when I’ve developed a thick skin for politics, unions and cattiness, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Then again, anything is possible, and it’s a long way to retirement.

    Am I to assume you are working for a school photographer that provides yearbook pics? As a yearbook adviser, please do a good job for us. Life is hard enough in our crazy world, we need all the help we can get. Make those kids smile and look great.

  2. I’ll do my best. I’m pretty sure that my company does Fresno High pretty much every year, in any case.

    Well, if you get sent our way, let me know. I’ll come over and say hi, and perhaps even bring you a bottle of cold water. Although the auditorium is now air conditioned, it sometimes breaks.

  4. I’d be glad to, and that bottle of water will be well appreciated.
