Brain Space

Thus is my semester, already a week old:

Today, in the space of a few hours, I taught some sections of Anna Deavere Smith's Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992; the George Aiken melodrama version of Uncle Tom's Cabin; and two stories by Jorge Luis Borges--"The Garden of Forking Paths," and "Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote."

You'll understand if I don't have much time to blog for a bit.

Seriously. But today's cocktail of prednisone (for some poison ivy) and espresso didn't hurt. I'm sure I breathed, though...I'll keep an eye on that.
