Reengaging after academic burnout

My last post described my brain after an academic year (including last summer) that resulted in burnout. The unfortunate side(?) effect of that burn out has been the tabling of a book that I’m editing – with some 25 chapters and three times as many authors and coauthors.

So I just sent them an email explaining that I was burned out. Will they sympathize or ostracize?  Not sure but I need to move on this project. I think I can but let’s see how it goes.

On a completely unrelated note, my students found the first wood thrush nest of the season. Last field season of the project looking at wood thrush reproductive success as a function of context (landscape) and local effects, such as tree cover.
