The Blue Muse

The Blue Muse Exemplified in the phrase "deep thoughts, but mostly other things," The Blue Muse is a general-interest blog focused on telling stories about travel, general aviation (non-commercial), cooking, teaching/post-graduate education, photography, communication and everything in between. Most posts feature interesting, humor-infused "slice of life" tales from a personal viewpoint.

It’s Professor ‘Twitter Girl’ now, thank you very much

I tried not to be offended when he ran out of class in the middle of what students usually describe as the most engaging lecture of the semester. When he came back awhile later, his smirk from the back row unnerved me. But I shrugged it off, avoided his gaze, and …

Stranded in Albuquerque (and surprisingly thankful)

People ask me all the time: “How did you do it?” Until standing at the ticket counter today, not yelling at the gate agent who explained with infuriating nonchalance that not only was I unable to join an earlier flight, but that I would not be getting to my final destination at …
