Writing has slipped to the bottom of my list of priorities and maybe that's the way it's supposed to be. I keep lamenting the lack of balance but perhaps I'm where I should be, focusing on my health and focusing on the program I direct. I've managed to restore this blog and am posting thoughts and pictures on a semi-regular basis. I'm making positive changes to my writing program. I'm in week #9 with Weight Watchers and exercising nearly each and every day. I'm not giving up, just trying to give up on lamenting who I'm not and what I'm not doing.

Great air fresheners from my sister Anna and family give a hint of cherry to an office that otherwise smells like coffee and unwashed tupperware. Conferencing with students about works-in-progress and considering giving bonus points to the first student who comments.

How do I stay dry and get from the AB back to "civilization (i.e., the CASL building)? I don't. I get wet. Even cutting through Natural Sciences and the UC, I get wet. And the Nat Sci building always smells like a bag of dry dog food.
