The greatest profession, and so on

Well, if you are on partial leave such that you are only teaching two classes, actually two sections of the same class, and it is one you have given before, and the students in it are at a level appropriate for it; and after that you only have a very few independent study and graduate students; and you are not on an onerous number of committees, but are on some interesting ones outside the university; and you have discovered how to live in your town and enjoy it; and you are contemplating two interesting conferences this year in very interesting places; then … it is true that the freedom and flexibility of the days, and all the time there is for writing and research, are quite marvelous.

And in my case the financial situation is still too worrisome, I can hardly turn around, but I am still in the middle class because we do have health insurance.
