. . . days that are the good flesh continuing

I’ve just finished up my grading for the summer term, and one student who struggled but worked extremely hard finished strong. It’s such a great feeling to see effort pay off. Her final paper was exceptional, one of the best in the class. I’m super proud of her.

Aaaaand, I finished CeCe. I’ll post more thoughts on it once I have a chance to block it and take a few pics. For now, it’s on to the Calligraphy cardigan!

In the in-between I’ve been knitting knitting knitting on the current pair of stripey socks, even while I’m driving. Only at the stop lights, of course.

Yesterday, I took the day off to be with some very dear friends. They’ve rented a cabin on top of Roan Mountain for the weekend, and I went up and spent the day visiting, spinning on the porch, eating amazing wood fired pizza, and checking out the scenery.

These pictures are from the top of Roan Mountain. It’s one of the highest peaks in this area, and there is nothing but gorgeousness everywhere you look.

The title of this post is from the poem “Meditation At Lagunitas” by Robert Hass: “There are moments when the body is as numinous / as words, days that are the good flesh continuing.”

Talk to me!
