March 24, 2017
Student admits she hasn’t been coming to class, asks if that is so very important. “You were vague about attendance requirements,” she says. I email her the paragraph from the syllabus which says that class is ALL important, that four absences lowers your grade one notch, etc. Wonder what she could possibly mean by “vague.”
Anyway, she shows up, and shows the best poem of her career.
Went to a meeting about establishing new minors and new programs. Two things amazed me. One is how politically ignorant I am (the politics of the institution of which I’ve been a part for 34 years). The other is how the people with the least to say INEVITABLY talk the longest.
Watched horror movies on TV.
Heart-dark yesterday, but again had joyful, even hilarious dreams. Some spiritual balancing act is being staged within.
