Yesterday was one of those days that I felt fortunate to have my job--after a good morning teaching in the classroom, I got to tag along with a class that was taking a field trip to a museum.
I liked the exhibits at the museum, as I always do. I was inspired by the exhibit of the lone female credentialed as an official WWII photographer, but I most loved the exhibit that explored Scandinavian abstract expressionism of the first half of the 20th century.
Thus inspired, I came back downstairs and sat at the museum café. I watched my colleague go over essays with her students in the café, while I made some notes for a poem. I had a latte--it was so delicious that I had another.
After her class was over, my colleague and I went to a downtown campus to say hi to some folks we know there. I'm not great at networking with new people, but I do make an effort to stay in touch with people I have known through the years.
My writing time is short this morning, but it's been a good writing week. And I like having days like yesterday that remind me that it's been a good administrator week overall too.
