Got to say, this quarter of teaching rhetoric and composition has been beyond delightful. I have the smartest and most engaged group of first-year students that I’ve seen in a long time!
On another note, we are in the middle of a horrendous winter storm (on my birthday, no less!). The wind is gusting at up to 60 mph (according to weather.com). The outside cat, Moppet, whom we inherited when our next door neighbor moved a year and a half ago, has disappeared in the ferocity of the wind and cold. She is an old girl, kinda’ like me today, and being out in this weather is just not a wise choice for her well-being.
May I make better choices for my well-being, as the years and the storms assail me.
