Shelly Errington: Going Over to the Light Side

When faculty stop their teaching to assume duties as full-time administrators, they sometimes joke that they’re "going over to the Dark Side."  I am calling my move from full-time teaching and university service “going over to the Light Side.” I’ll devote my time to my “light” humorous drawings and cartoons, to photography – which is literally light writing on a prepared surface (or sensor!), and will continue my writing and research, which I do with a light touch of humor—regardless of the deep subject matter!
--Shelly Errington
