Small victories

I'm out from under a mountain of marking.

It didn't rain this afternoon when I took the doggies to the park.

Good (or not bad) news about my Aunt in California in an email from my favourite cousin (hi Marty!)

Detente in the department - no inflammatory emails today, and people are speaking to one another.

AND, not least, a student in my 160 class today asked me if I taught 2nd year courses. When I said "yes," he said "sweet!." I took that as a compliment :)

  • RIP Ray Bradbury

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

  • Profound Gifts

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
