Some days, you wake up and have coffee and putter a little, get some work done, see some friends. Some days you wake early and begin work, go to class, teach a class, hold office hours, attend a staff meeting, attend a workshop on ESL writers. For me, today is the latter, the nitty gritty of life - the long, tiring, aprons of life. It's not without its beauty, but it's a little tougher to appreciate sometimes. It's night now, and there's nothing left to do but apologize for being of my book post game for one more night. Some days it's about just showing up, and today's going to have to be that day.
