Yesterday and today

Today there is 20 cm. of fresh snow.

Today I am re-reading Elias Canetti's "Crowds and Power" (Masse und Macht). It's brilliant.

Today is also the end of Reading Week. On Thursday students hand in their research papers, and I have to mark them all before I leave for Austin. This means I have only a few more days to get work done for myself. But I continue to be less than motivated.

Yesterday I spent a half-day at the spa. I got my hair done - and a manicure and hand massage, a pedicure and foot massage, and a face and scalp massage. For four hours, a half-dozen women cultivated gentle extremities of touch, texture, scent and sound, heads, hands and feet. It was glorious!
