creepy forest in a storm
not that i spent twenty minutes running up and down a soggy roadside in the rain, balancing the camera on my container of yoghurt . . .
this is the forest around campus that i have mentioned/photographed a couple of times before. still stormy and cold. we got nearly 50ml yesterday, and people have been evacuated as rivers split their banks. residents are warned "to stay away from fast-running rivers and streams.' lucky i live on top of a mountain. though the storm has also stirred up the reservoirs so we have to boil our water. which is all very well if you happen to be one of those kettle-owning people.
rather stiff and sore. i went and did my normal gentle yoga and have regained the ability to touch my toes and so forth.
i have a week's marking hiatus now, in which i am to prepare a presentation on walter raleigh, write my essay for asian-canadian lit and write a proposal for my renaissance essay. i had no clue about the last one, so i went and saw frances yesterday and she gave me some good ideas. something to do with the illustrations in witchcraft pamphlets. will let you know how it develops.
