- Still finding images from last week I want to highlight here.
- Simplifying my spring semester to the recommended number of courses. This spring: a non-fiction seminar, a poetry seminar, and TAing for an introductory literature course. For once, listening to everyone's advice and leaving it at that. (After all, I'm taking this time to write, aren't I? How much writing did I really get done last semester?)
- Reading: I'm just finishing up The Reluctant Fundamentalist for the course I'm teaching; next: The Age of Shiva by Manil Suri. Poems from Language for a New Century.
- Listening: I picked up The Girl With No Shadow by Joanne Harris on audio, which is the sequel to Chocolat. This will keep me company on my commute to campus.
- Feeling quiet; so much swirling about in my mind.

May I borrow The Reluctant Fundamentalist or will you need it on hand?

See you Thursday?

Five Quarters of the Orange is also quite good. I do enjoy Joanne Harris.
