I have no appointments with students, meetings to attend, engagements of any kind. My students have been e-mailing me the URLs of their e-portfolios, and tomorrow, I intend to spend the day reading and responding to those portfolios, calculating grades, and drinking tea. I might take a walk.

In other words, the semester is winding down.

In other words, it's almost May, which in college land is summer, aka bliss.

Here's last Friday's poem. I'm a bit behind. But I will catch up, you just watch.

I like "you will have to live with the light."
And there's no behind like I'm behind. But still.
Lovely poem.
But will I see you tomorrow at The Lunch? And also The Dinner? I asked to sit with you....

At least you're keeping up! I've almost drowned in crazy but I think I'll emerge soon.
I love how the poem is always clarifying the son, the father, the son. It's a gorgeous repetition that fits so nicely with the idea of translation.

That poem is beautiful and haunting. I love it. I'm getting into the habit of writing down phrases from poetry (and life) that I like. This poem made the cut.
