IMG_0203This is not the natural state of my desk, but this image highlights some of the craziness going on this semester and some of the ways I keep calm.  The work in the center includes grading, peer reviews, and reading for French class. But I also have a Buddha, my Sunshine Buddy and bird lamp to keep myself zen.  I’ve got my bright yellow water bottle to stay cheerful and hydrated.  And, of course, my Olympus film camera I hope to use this weekend :)
