Sustainable Marks is Back with a New Staff Member

Dear Readers:

 

Sustainable Marks has been on hiatus for the past 6 weeks due to the birth of my son, Benjamin. He’s doing great, but, of course, there’s been also been a good deal of crying and fussing and throwing up.  Benjamin has done a little of those things, too.  Now that things have returned -somewhat- to normal, I look forward to resuming a regular posting schedule.  Thank you for your continued support of the blog.
