It Gives a Lovely Light

Okay, I've been out of town three times in the past month, and it's all good, but I'm tired, and now I start teaching again. I have the privilege of teaching a first-year seminar this fall, so I'm on stage all weekend, which is no good thing for a heron_pose, I must say. Still, I can remember my excitement over the first weekend at college lo, those many years ago now, and I want to honor that for these kids.

Once upon a time, I was a very disciplined person, and it would be awesome if I could find that again. I'm teaching early mornings this term, and getting enough sleep AND enough exercise is just crucial these days. It would be nice to think I could keep a resolution. Argh.

In law school, when I hadn't seen "I Spy" in many years, I was able to set the VCR (yes, oldentimes!) in order to tape it when the re-runs came on at 2:00 a.m. on the local station. Then I got up at 5:30 so I could watch the episode before my housemates got up and I had to get moving.

Of course, I was young then, and losing sleep was still kind of a romantic adventure, and not the Terrible Mistake it is today.

So, here's to working on a healthy "work-life balance" this term, because oh, my dears, there is work to do.
