Weekly Twitter Round Up

A relatively slow week in the Twitterverse after what seems like months of non-stop activity and major news events. Good thing as life has also found a bit more balance for me as I ease into the summer months. This past weekend and the improving weather was finally worthy of some outdoor activity—seawall walks, biking, patio surfing, meeting with friends etc.., dinner later tonight with family—and finding time to sketch out research plans and post information about classes I will be teaching in the fall (see yesterday’s post for details). All in all a wonderful and peaceful week. Enjoy my picks from this past week. 

P.S. Happy Birthday Brian! It was a blast this past weekend! I look forward to our European adventure in August!
