Endings, though most often are sad, are in reality sweet. The papers are in, the exams given, grades of students to be submitted Wednesday next week. I’m, in general, a free man. No more, at least in the next three weeks, worrying about what to say in a one-hour class period, about what to wear that will not cause the most modest of my students to blush, or about which of my repertoire of jokes to throw to keep my easily distracted students from sleeping or their thoughts giving in to their natural wanderlust.
I have been away from this blog for a time; I might, though I cannot promise, be able to at last find time to write more regularly again at least before the second begins.
For now, I am just relishing this wonderful feeling of being well-rested and lightness.
