Vacation Pause

April 2, 2010 am30 10:59 am

After a tough fall and winter, it’s been nice to slide into spring with a nice big break.

Did my taxes (or better yet, watched my accountant do them – gave up on doing my own a few years ago).

Visited family. Saw some (in the scheme of things) minor Connecticut flooding.

Saw two movies (Close Up is a twenty year old Iranian film by Abbas Kiarostami. He films some pretrial footage and the actual trial of a conman accused of impersonating another Iranian director, and then gets the conman and the family to reenact the scenes leading up to his arrest. The Secret of Kells was nominated for an academy award this year, feature-length animated. It was diverting, even riveting. Cool music. Beautiful artwork. Loved the forest. But the story, meh.) Will see at least one more, maybe a few.

Set up tutoring sessions for college students.

Walked a little.

Ate better.

And let go of blogging… but have a bunch of ideas percolating. Should be back soon, with a flurry.

For my teacher (and SRP) friends, enjoy the second half of break. And if you haven’t cast your ballot in the UFT elections…
