above is a VERY cute luggage tag that came prancing in the mail from miss pink . being so new to this whole online blog community thing i am pleasantly suprised at how lovely and generous people are. read blog, blog says email us for a treat, email, said goodie arrives in mail all adorable and with such a sweet note! i found miss pink's blog because she so generously linked to my site.... ah the intricacies of the web... it weaves a tangled - oh you know!
other surprise... those desert folk! they are sneaky like a fox they are. i sit minding my own p's and q's (all 500 of them - anyone have any extra u's?). postcard for the lovely countess' show arrives... and who is in the project room? MOI ! i had absolutely no idea.... the countess and i will be showing simultaneously - how divine (and intervented!). i so wish i could get to the desert sooner to wine and dine and laugh and giggle and bask with all of them for the opening.... sigh.... but i will get to see the show at least! our caravan to the desert departs in t-minus a few weeks (note to self: AAA maps, rent a car!). the countess has also finally blessed me w/ some photographs of her and her little doglet (her term). the trade begins in earnest now... hmmm... lovely fairy with furry friend in a wright approved transportation device.... goggles? scarves? red barron? the options seem endless, perfectly silly and exactly as they should be!
i quickly spied a couple former students at Mills today. i got all warm and fuzzy and got hugs and proclimations of being missed. always a nice thing. for a second i was overwhelmed with the thought of how teaching extends your being - your family in a sense - because now there is a set of "students" (in quotes because they are not forever students - and hopefully some will move into the friend category as i have been lucky enough to do w/ some dear professors) to whom i will always feel connected - and today it really hit home that they will feel the same of me. i think this is also because i am in serious anticipation of this new crop - new school, new faces, new ideas, new possibilites.... what to do with all this newness and potential??
enough! i should be in bed, or returning emails to VIP's or coming up w/ those damn syllabi!
