Bons mots

  • "We live as though the world were what it should be, to show it what it can be."
    ~ Angel, "Deep Down," Season 4

  • It is difficult
    to get the news from poems
    yet men die miserably every day
    for lack
    of what is found there.
    ~ William Carlos Williams, from “Asphodel, That Greeny Flower”

Oh, gosh, this is something I've been thinking a lot about lately. I may have the opportunity to chair my department in a few years, and although there are several things I think I'd enjoy about it, I have to remind myself that a lot of things involved in chairing are things that leave me feeling exactly the way you describe. Which is kind of hard to explain, when people wonder why you're not all that enthusiastic.

I told my tiny dept today that they need to think about rotations as I go into my third year of chairing. I do not like the juggling at all, and you've very much articulated that stomach-ache I've been having.

Who is this What Now?

  • I'm an English teacher at a pretty darned good high school (the justly famous Fabulous Girls' School, or FGS). I am partner to D. We live in an adorable, messy little house in Adventure City, where we are hoping to have more frequent adventures than we have thus far. Two cats -- the Muse and the Contemplative -- live with us and keep life at home plenty adventurous.
