The years (2013)

Last year, winter break meant the end of my one-semester experiment teaching an online MFA class, and I was relieved.  I acknowledged that break is never “the fantasy of the complete break from work and obligation,” but enjoyed having the time to see friends and family, read, and relax.  We visited Stubb on the road again and had breakfast with Elinor.  I reapplied for something I’d been a finalist for earlier in 2013, didn’t get it, and found I didn’t actually mind too much.  (There, too, is something I need to look at this break–upcoming deadlines for residencies and colonies, and decide whether I want to apply to anything.)
