The grades have been submitted and are wending their way through the system.
I will soon be sending on your library assignments to Janet Fraser. Anyone who has yet to send me a clean copy and wants to, do so sometime this week.
If any of you would like to discuss your assignments (or anything else), email me and we can set up a meeting. I would be more than happy to go over your work with you.
I can’t tell you all how much I appreciate your forbearance this past month. And thanks for all the warm wishes and kind expressions of condolence.
Congratulations to those of you who are graduating. I look forward to seeing you cross the stage. All the best in your next chapters.
Finally, I wad delighted to see many familiar names signed up for classes next term:

Old Woman With A Distaff by Bartolome Esteban Murillo, 1642

I am obnoxious to each carping tongue
Who says my hand a needle better fits,
A poet’s pen all scorn I should thus wrong,
For such despite they cast on female wits:
If what I do prove well, it won’t advance,
They’ll say it’s stolen or else it was by chance.
Anne Bradstreet, The Tenth Muse (1650)
