That’s where I was last week…
December 13th, 2013

That’s where I was last week – southern California. A woman was swimming in the Pacific, as you can see in the photo. Seals and cormorants were sunning themselves on the rocks at La Jolla beach. It was grand. It’s 9 below here in St. John ’s at this moment, and well below average temps. We are all in a deep freeze and California is just a sunny memory, albeit a delicious one.

I have lots to say about the annual Council of Graduate Schools meetings I attended in San Diego but time is racing here in the pre-holiday rush and so I’ll have to do with the photo and a promise to return with a longer post next week.
