I'm approaching the end of my first week of summer session. So far, so good. I'm teaching an introductory comp class of 20 students, who--at least during this first week--have done a good job of looking awake at 8 o'clock in the morning. The class is four days a week for four weeks-- as of now we only have 11 classes left!
The recent record heat abated, thank Goddess. Life is good otherwise. Not much else to report-- reading lots of Hawthorne and Mellville for school and trying to get an Oregon Literary Fellowship application written by Friday. Also am making prepartions for wizard school Conclave, which happens in about three weeks.
The above is a corner of my deck, with pretty flowers!
