New York City 10 degrees January 2013
I am easily pleased but not easily entertained.
I try my best to stay in the present moment but am challenged to do so.
I love writing, reading, and teaching.
I’m overly sensitive at times.
I love lavender lotion and candles. All things lavender! We are planning to plant lavender this spring.
I am a student at Stanford University working toward a graduate degree. This is my last year. I will miss the friends that I have made in this program.
My thesis topic has been approved with the condition that my work be centered on the work of W.G. Sebald. I will examine the complexity of narration found in W.G.Sebald’s Austerlitz,as well as assert that the narration, among other things, is Kafkaesque. The novel is also a Holocaust Memorial.
My adviser has been assigned: Professor Herbert Lindenberger, Avalon Professor of the Humanities, author of 11 books, most on opera, and a thoroughly delightful, brilliant, and charming man. He will be the perfect mentor to guide me through this process.
Thank you for reading this blog, and on occasion, leaving a comment.
