Carnival of the Animals

The CSR Camerata concert went very well (not just saying that; read the review :-). I had a lot of fun reading Nash’s poems and listening to my fabulous colleagues play. We all went out to The Point afterward, which is always lovely, too. I am consequently brainstorming more ways to combine the written word and music. Who wouldn’t want to add beautiful music to an academic presentation? Wonderful.

A hectic week ahead which culminates in leaving Friday for Iowa to give the keynote speech at the Craft/Critique/Culture Conference. Let’s hope by the time I get on that plane I am happy with the talk and the Powerpoint presentation, so I can relax and read something fun rather than continue tinkering with it all.

Not there yet. Argh — at least not Sunday afternoon as I type this, though perhaps Monday morning when it posts was supposed to post [d’oh!]. Because I’ve got events all day Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, so there’s precious little time left.

Gulp.
