However, Cam has realized teaching is his calling. It is something he is passion-
ate about doing. He cares deeply about his students. The autonomy he had as an associate director at the Academy of Art University is something he greatly enjoyed. The network he had built in San Francisco (and other opportunities there) were missed. We have dear friends there.
So, when Cameron was asked to return to his old position, he decided to do so. He will start back there on April 1, with renewed enthusiasm, appreciation, & a fresh perspective.
Sam & I will most likely stay in Anchorage through the end of Sam's school year (late May). Then, we plan to take our time exploring the 3,000 miles between here and there. We'll travel across Alaska, through Yukon, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, & California, arriving back in Marin County in late June.
We intend to make the most of the time we have left in Alaska until then, and hope we will have opportunities to return.
