Very little to say except it is gorgeous outside. Every day it seems things get a little brighter, a bit greener, and everything is beginning to smell like flowers. It’s about time. It wasn’t a terribly snowy winter here this year, but it was cold as usual. I have a tendency to grow gloomy in the winter after a while, so this year I gave myself a course of vitamins, hoping it would counter the effect that grey prison wall skies have on me, and though I did notice a difference, which was very welcome, there was still a bit of struggle to get through. I’m going to be spending a lot of time outdoors this summer. If only you could store light somewhere in your body to use during the dark months. Scientists, get on it!
I have one more week of classes to teach, then several days of constant evaluation for grading, and then I’ll have a bit more time to myself than usual. I’ll be doing some coursework of my own this summer, and working on my book, of course, so I certainly won’t be entirely free to wander through the summer months as if they’re endless. I’ll be staying in Pittsburgh for quite a bit of time, actually, but it’ll be a bit of a break from the usual, and I’m looking forward to exploring that city more than I already have, getting to know it better.
Other than this, I have a bit of good news to announce soonish, as soon as some paperwork is filed. But mum’s the word till then.
Happy return of the sun.
Oh please the good news make us warm!!!
We will have snow still tomorrow here in Sapporo.
