Split the day half and half between reading useful things and organizing photographs. Nothing good to say about useful things (well, it would be nice if more important people in the academy could write well). For photos, the big issue is simply categorizing the better ones, which takes plenty of time.
Made it out briefly to watch the sunset from the beach. Came back with a few pictures, some sand in the camera, and a reaffirmed belief in the value of maintaining working relations with the out-of-doors. Nothing quite like waves and a little wind to clear one’s head of illusions and false thoughts.
Concluded with dinner and looking over photos, older and newer.
