Just finished preparing the first exam for my philosophy students. We read Nicomachean Ethics , watched Lola Rennt and Groundhog Day . Joel Sachs's translation of Aristotle was not too painful to read, full of explanatory notes, good intro. I was worried about using films to work with Aristotle. It has worked well so far; have to see what their essays look like. We're going to read Emerson, Thoreau, Smiles and Alger next. I had a student in my office to take the exam early; she wrote and I wrapped up a story, third version, ready to send it out--the worst part, letting it go into nothing for awhile.

My life, hic et nunc, is: poetry, narrative & hockey.
