more Kaiserslautern

For anyone interested, here is the weblink to the theater where I'll be working.

They'll be performing "Lucky Stiff" opening May 28, so Maren and I will get to see a show that's up and meet the people who work hard and volunteer their time there.

And for my fussball-loving friends who are curious, no, we have no interest in adopting 1. FC Kaiserslautern as our new "home team." That'd be like moving to Texas and immediately becoming a Cowboys fan.

The end of Texas.

Dear family & friends.

God sees fit to bring a new chapter into our lives. In May, 2009, I will no longer be a professor at East Texas Baptist University. Instead, I will become the "Theatre Specialist", or artistic director, at the community theatre on the army instillation in Kaiserslautern, Germany. This will put us 1 1/2 hours from Maren's family.

There is no telling how long we will be there, though should I do a good job, I could have this job as long as I want. However, we are committing for 3 years at the minimum. To our friends in the US, we will miss you dearly, but we hope to have a large house for you to come and visit us. To our German friends & family, we can't wait to share our lives with you again.

To my students I leave behind: I love you all dearly, and these last two years have been some of the most memorable moments in my life, and I will cherish them forever.

Live big.
