Raining

I think we have a monsoon season and a dry season now. The winter has become wet. Very wet. The summer, well dry, hot, and unbearable. Oh, for a more temperate climate. That might be over.

Here’s Henry looking out at the rain and our front-yard lake. This was taken a couple of days ago during one of our frequent power outages. We played some games, and I noticed the light would be good for a photo or two. Henry’s turning into quite the model.

We finished discussing Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler in class today. It was a lot of fun, but we must move on to Chekhov. I worry a bot about the structure of this class, like we're moving too slowly. Well, I think it’s OK, and I look forward to seeing my students’ additions to Wikipedia.

Speaking of that, our The Faith of Graffiti article is now live on Wikipedia. This was a group effort, with me acting like the Editor-in-Chief. As of today, we’re still editing, but I think my grad students did a pretty stellar job. We even have it nominated for a good article. I think we should get it.
