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”

Enjoy your break! Hopefully mine begins tomorrow (which is also our anniversary, but we only get to celebrate when we're done grading :-( )

In the meantime I'm in grading jail and borderline jealous of you. Should not even be reading/commenting! Sigh... :-P

My experience was that most family calmed down about my conversation after a few years passed. (Not my mom, except she did start speaking to me again.) Two and a half decades later, it's just another weird thing that I did for them. Good luck this year.
