Good Things About This Week:
  • An unexpected package from an LJ friend containing a CD from my wish list (Martha Argerich playing Bach Partitas). What a heartwarming surprise!
  • Hebrew Book Week began today! [books!]
  • Realizing that Greek material that's been difficult in the past isn't difficult at all. I may be able to read Homer one day after all.
  • Some badly-needed solitude

Not So Good Things About This Week:
  • Greek verbs with second aorist forms; verba contracta; twisted conditional phrases; general angst about the Greek exam (taking place tomorrow morning)
  • The stupi--no, cynical! assassination of Rantissi, clearly meant to thwart any chance, heaven forbid, of progress in the "roadmap" process. The painfully predictable terror bombings that followed (15 dead this afternoon in Jerusalem).
  • The clear realization of the magnitude of neglect I am guilty of, on so many fronts.
  • Hebrew Book Week began today! [there goes my salary]
  • Current Music
    Bach -- Toccata in C minor, BWV 911 [Martha Argerich]

And again. More dead children, to stoke the fires of fury, to keep the blood on the streets from ever congealing.

Is it time for civil disobedience?
