So for those people wondering where I’ve been, why the silence, it’s because I’ve been marking papers (off and on) or avoiding marking papers (off and on) for the past week.
Technically the week’s been a vacation. Easter came and went, and then on the Tuesday following Easter, I woke up and thought “Aah, no work today”. I spent the afternoon marking papers and meeting with my students. Wednesday I marked papers. Thursday I had to do something for my full-time job (it took up the day) and on Friday I didn’t mark papers, but took a vacation. AFTER spending the morning in a meeting, I may add (I didn’t take anything on which to write, a decision I regretted. Had one of those on Wednesday too.) And wrote a limerick for NaPo. Consequently, today I marked papers. I didn’t write any poetry today.
Friday’s limerick will appear above.
