here are just a few things

So, I worked really hard (pretty hard) through the weekend. Imagine me holed up in my apartment with sweats on and an never ending cup of tea and you’ve probably got a pretty accurate image. In fact, the dissertation has reached a lovely, easy place. It won’t stay in this place forever, but I’m enjoying it while it lasts.
We’re having this gentle cool fall weather that allows the leaves to die at their own pace. The town is full of lovely autumn colors.
I responded to an impeccably timed email yesterday. Emails from this person are always impeccably timed and the call to write in response always brings out the best in my writing. Or, maybe not the best, but an opportunity for me to write in unexpected ways. Those opportunities seem few and far between these days. That will all change once the weight of school is gone, and after that, after the weight of working for tenure is done.
I’ve been sleeping poorly and then sleeping late to catch up. Stupidly, I’m drinking caffeine today. I don’t drink caffeine. And I especially shouldn’t drink it when I’m having trouble falling asleep.
By the way, the “life partner” arrives the day after tomorrow.
