i taught for close to twenty years, all together.  i miss the teaching, and the students, and the colleagues and the excuse to be constantly absorbed in writing, but i don't miss grading papers, and i'm still constantly absorbed in writing, anyway.  seems to be "more than a condition/a reason for being."

Nostalgia

The childhood cookie jar. Now considered rare and worth a small fortune.

Various things I recall reading, watching, playing with, looking at, wearing, etc.

Kafkaz loved Dickens the Wonder Mutt better than she has ever loved any other dog.  He was the very best of doggies, is totally irreplaceable, and is much missed.  Many thanks to Mr. 13 for snapping this cell phone picture, and for sharing it with me.
