Well, I'm feeling a bit like I've been shot through an orchard and hit every tree! But, the first five-day residency of my doctoral program is over. It has been a whirlwind of dissertation practice, research methodology, scholarship-practitioner-leadership, and writing styles. It will likely take a week or so for me to synthesize the content, but WOW, that was some week. One thing I learned? I have some peers in this program who are pretty amazing people.
