Stray thoughts from here and there. The occasional concern for construct validity. No more logic. Fish.

At one with the world

Four co-authors waiting to be reverted to.
Three reviews with deadlines looming.
Two courses to be prepped within the next two weeks.

But

One stuffed leather armchair.
One dash of warm winter sunshine.
One sleeping dachshund piled lazily onto one dangling leg.
One long-lost Dick Francis.
One cup of masala chai.
One mother playing her violin in a distant room.

The world can wait.

Mahableshwar! Strawberry jam! Raspberry jam!....sheesh that stuff was sickly sweet. Wouldn't touch it, now that I know how to make the real stuff.

A series of laid-back, nostalgic, Kissmuss holiday posts. Made it worthwhile to log back into Bloglines after weeks.
