Nouvel an

I wish everybody who teaches a very productive, enjoyable, and intellectually enriching semester. Remember, we went into this career to read books, generate ideas, and share knowledge. Everything else is just noise.

…or, as my old colleague said, we got into this to have fun, and we must remember this and act in that sense. He of course said these words at a point where the noise was quite deafening, and I do also believe in honoring the fact that it can be.

We had met because we were both working on Vallejo. In honor of that, here is someone’s parody of the later Vallejo and I am laughing.

Axé.
