School’s out. A big perk of college teaching is the early end of the school year. We’ve had beautiful weather this week, and I’ve already planted tomatoes and flowers.

I had a good school year with lots of wonderful students and interesting, gratifying interactions. But it was a stressful one, too, with a nasty cheating incident and a number of especially needy student types. I’m decompressing.

This paean to summer must be galling to all you who work all year. I’m sorry. Summer is a great big gift of time that I try mightily to appreciate.
