One of the great percs of being an academic, is having a sabbatical. In the University of California system, a Senate member is eligible for a sabbatical after teaching 9 terms at full salary.

So, beginning the Ides of March, I will be on sabbatical from teaching at UCLA for six months. I can’t wait. I am so horny to write music, and work on my various projects, I am almost cross-eyed.

If I ruled the world, I would make ALL businesses incorporate the concept of sabbaticals in their corporate structure: paid leave for at least one month a year, and more periodically. It prevents burnout, and invigorates the employee.

I will likely tell you what I am working on, and ask your opinion when I need it.

Thank you for reading my blog — vocal and silent participants alike.
