I never thought I'd see the day (especially not with this nutso stanza), but above one of Jessica's students notes the fact that my similes bring out intense emotion. Thank you, dear student! I hope you did well on your final exam.
Today and tomorrow are administrative crunch days. Potential NEOMFA applicants are coming out of the woodwork, we're doing the final proofing of BOR, and I need to finish my final report for the Ohio Arts Council grant that gave me time to work on Monica. Then tomorrow afternoon I get to activate the away messages, and take a little time off.
Until the "winter break to-do list" kicks in, of course.
