Student Readers: A Warning

I welcome students readers to this blog. However, be aware that, although I do not use anyone's actual name, the descriptions of behaviors and conversations are not disguised. This is a space in which I may rant, vent, and otherwise express responses that I would do my best to mask or at least tone down in professional interactions with students. This is my personal, gloves off, no holds barred, direct from the gut expression of what it feels like to do my job. If you think you might be hurt or offended or upset by that, read no further. The person I'm ranting about could be you.

Hi! And you are...?

My readership has suddenly blossomed, which is a lovely development--but I don't know who is reading the blog, how you found it, and why you find it interesting. I'd love to hear from you! Please feel free to use the "comment" box at the end of any particular post to let me know what brought you to this page--and what keeps you coming back for more (if you do).

Not you, Barry. You already told me--and thanks!

An early halt

I've been noodling around with other chapters, not working on the glossary today, and I think I can move another into the "first draft completed" column. I'm stopping early because I'm going to go be a student this evening: I'm checking out a "tango boot camp" class, but that means I have to be dressed for tango and out the door to catch a train pretty soon here. This may be the shortest blog post on record--but despite the truncated work day and the brevity of the report from the sabbatical trench, I feel pretty good about the day. But I also feel pretty good to stop. I'm working at home, and knowing that I was going to have to stop early, I haven't been getting up and moving around as much as I'd like, so my body is restless. Time to transition away from the computer and into the sunshine of a beautiful spring day.

Hasta manana.
