I’ve been on campus a lot in the past month. Most of the time I run into anyone I haven’t seen in a while, they ask, “How’s your sabbatical going?” And I reply, “Quickly.” Actually, I’ve felt that way since the beginning. I’m getting a lot done. But I’m loath to stick my head up for very long. Writing here, I feel like I’m taking away time from the retooling and reading that’s been so engaging for me this far.
My calendar shows 16 weeks left. The length of a semester.
