Sunday sans poetry

I have come to look forward to my Sunday poetry fix -- both writing and reading. But this Sunday is devoted to grading massive numbers of 'papers' (in electronic form)and tests (that are on paper). Years ago, I used to put a message on my answering machine on days like today, that said "Am drowning in a sea of paper, will return your call when I get my head above water." Perhaps later this week there will be time for poetry.

I admire teachers ... they have the patience of Job, and are the most unappreciated folks in the world!

Maybe that's a new meme--

Sundays without memes.

Good luck with the papers....it's important work, no matter how you may sometimes feel about it!

And I will be here to read and listen and think on your beautiful words.
