Winona in late February

Sarah and I took a break from grading to enjoy the lake today. Here’s a device they use to keep part of the lake from freezing over: “On very thin ice, very thin ice, very thin ice, very thin ice…”

Eleven years…

It’s been eleven years since that horrible day the world changed, and I don’t know that I have anything substantial to say about it. Maybe instead I’ll post a photo of this memorial I found in the Glasgow Botanic Gardens. When I came across this memorial in 2010, it moved me, and made me hopeful that we might make a world with more global understanding.
