Discussing student performance, grading the final (term-end exam) for EN302 (Advanced Composition), and enjoying the incredible weather today. Thank you, Senior Philosopher, for catching me in a grading stupor and suggesting that I go out for a breath of fresh air. I couldn’t head outside without taking my camera! The yacht featured here has been on the Hudson all week. She posed nicely for me before I went back inside to finish grading the 61 essays (which averaged four-point-five pages each).
