i don't have any news to write. i'm catching up on a whole bunch of work, i can feel everything looming, so i'm trying to be up-to-date or ahead at this point. from here on in i have a major assignment/presentation due, or my students do, nearly every week til a week past the end of semester. which is do-able, but a little menacing. . .
i did a nice picture of a tiger.
and this is a little gesture to all of you frying in australia:
sorry, there are no bears or raccoons or even squaruls, but there's maple leaves (i think - i'm never sure about this. they look like them, don't you reckon?) and rain, which is very vancouverish.
