14 January 2011

today was a good day. got myself out of bed and on the go early, through the rain, to do some reading in an empty room of the english department before class. stole a deaccessioned copy of the chicago manual of style, older than myself, which had been abandoned to a public bookshelf. the english department abides by mla style. class was very relaxed, the professor, who I nothing short of idolize, did most of the talking, prefacing. there were four of us, our numbers meeting the minimum requirement. I so admire and respect this professor for his beautiful thoughts and gifted editing. his work will appear in a cambridge companion, pretty well the epitome of scholarship in the humanities. he has relaxed since he became a father to a little girl named Leila. I have become brave enough to talk to him.
