Spring Break

Monday morning, 8:30am, Day One of Spring Break:

The upcoming week, to be spent at various desks in my itinerant office of coffeeshops, libraries and the student union, feels like an unwrapped present. Without classes to teach, and with most of this campus's 45,000 students having migrated for warmer climes, the week is a reprieve and an opportunity to get some uninterrupted work done.

The rhythm of the academic year is a comfort, much like the changing of the seasons, and this year spring break comes just in time.
