I rarely ever post public declarations of affection. But each day of the four years since I married this woman—and of the three years we dated before that—I have fallen more and more in love with her. I couldn’t have conjured a more wonderful companion in my wildest dreams. My imagination isn’t strong enough to dream so big. And yet, this is my incredible reality.

These two may be a handful, but they sure bring color and purpose into my life. The next few (quiet) months simply won’t be the same without them. 😢

Adventures in the Galilee.

Rainy Nazareth with the in-laws. And a cat! ⛪️🐈

Got to bike a bit alongside this gorgeous Tel Aviv beach today 🚴🏽‍♂️🏝

The University of Texas at Austin has finally put up my M.A. thesis on their online thesis repository: http://hdl.handle.net/2152/72487

I guess it's all a little more official now 🤷🏽‍♂️

The first three horsemen of the apocalypse have come to Armageddon. The fourth one is taking the picture.

This is it, boys and girls. Bernie 2020 has officially been announced, and it's going to be a wild ride. Make your donations today.


I’m finally getting around to reading Steven Pinker’s The Language Instinct—it’s been on my “to-read” for way too long. So far, I’ve found his unquestioning support of Chomsky’s UG a bit annoying and his brutal takedown of Whorfianism refreshing.

Found out today that a few acceptance/rejection letters from the PhD programs I applied to have just started going out. And now I can't think about anything else. Notification taps from my Apple Watch have become anxiety-inducing. Thanks, thegradcafe.com. 🤞🏽😟

Hikes and ancient tombs. In our very own backyard! ⛰💀

As much as my wife and I have enjoyed invitations to dinner with fellow teachers in northern Israel, it’s our son who has most enjoyed the farm animals at the various kibbutzim. 🐄🐎🐑🐠🦃

It was really great to not have to grade papers during the holidays since the semester break in Israel comes later. But now it’s crunch time, and my eyes are getting tired. 📝😞

Nothing like enjoying a nice, juicy apple at church.
