Replicating the Shackleton spirit.
I had a good moment in the stacks today: I'd gone in to get this so that I could check a couple of quotations in the proofs of my Shakespeare adaptation essay. My eye wandered (it is the argument for open stacks) down the shelf and I spotted a book I have often heard about but never read, The Girlhood of Shakespeare's Heroines. It is too fragile to pack to take with me, but I am very curious to read some of it. (Also: disambiguation!)
I've been working steadily albeit in a small way every day on novel revisions, and it's interesting to see how it's coming together. Confession: desperate situations call for desperate remedies, and I did have to break out the device one day to liberate myself from the internet...
My alarm's set for 5:30am, and my flight to Cayman leaves at 8:45 from JFK. Apartment is clean and tidy for the catsitter. Only pity is that it is currently such nice running weather here!
