The most dreaded part of my summer has instead become a glorious time of ...
learning French (I've actually finished a course on tape for the first time in my life---I've borrowed them from libraries at least 4 times now),
soaking up some opera, some Cole Porter, and Leonard Bernstein,
long conversations with my Mandy,
warm afternoon sunlight,
a Madeline L'Engle interview on tape,
Angela's Ashes audiobook...
Next up...A Wrinkle In Time (a long ago read, and sadly, forgotten book by my new favorite author).
If only my car didn't require so much gas...
...I think I could really learn to like driving.
(So..I probably should have spent the last hour studying for my mid-term ...instead of blogging. I wish I could find a way to safely do THAT while driving!)
