Sneezing and Street Art and Travel . . .
My big commitment of the day seems to be seeing how many times one can sneeze consecutively without imploding. So far, I'm at 12 times, and I'm wondering what other stages this cold will reveal.
In between sneezing, I'm enjoying reading through, and responding to, my students' proposals for their final papers. Both 1st-year and 4th-year classes offer some gems and some duds, and I'm already trying to figure ways to guide both varieties toward a final version that I'll enjoy reading and marking in a few weeks. The countdown has begun -- only five more weeks of classes left before the exam period. Time to begin imagining my summer break, and we're in the throes of booking flights, trying to figure out efficient train routes, nailing down accommodations, and making sure our passports are up to date. More on those plans later.
Where have you been, through film or book or plane or train, that's still echoing for you?
Or where are you planning to go, or visiting imaginatively?
Spring needn't be the only thing that Springs Forward. . .
(if you want to travel backward a bit, though, here are links to my posts for last week:
Sunday's couch cocooning and sketching
Tuesday's images from my Vancouver run
and Friday's five things
