Sabbatical was finally mine, but now what? I read as much as I could find and contacted colleagues who had recently ended their sabbaticals for advice.

Ethics for Dealers: Deaccessioning
Art Antiques Design
If someone helps another person commit a crime, he's an accessory to the illegal act and probably guilty of an infraction. What about an ethical violation?

More Hospitals Use the Healing Powers of Art
Wall Street Journal
Researchers are learning more about the precise ways in which paintings and other works of art help patients and families in the healing process. With studies showing a direct link between the content of images and the brain's reaction to pain, stress, and anxiety, hospitals are considering and choosing artworks based on the evidence and giving them a higher priority than merely decoration.

I Used to Be a Good Teacher
Vitae
I spent five years on the tenure track. Now I'm an adjunct, and the move has affected my teaching in ways I didn't anticipate. I'm not the teacher I once was, largely thanks to the lack of support I receive as an adjunct. Sadly, my students suffer the loss.
