I've been taking a respite thanks to the Christmas holidays. One of the benefits of being a university professor is the breather you get over the holidays after you finish your fall semester final grading (a few days before Christmas) and before the preparation of the spring semester after January first. I went snowshoeing for the first time since my wife's stroke (the accompanying picture is one that I took in the process). Other than that, I've been reading Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. I saved this one for the holidays when I could hunker down and enjoy it. A few things have gotten in the way of long stretches of reading time, so I am no as far along as I had hoped I would be (plus, I am a slow reader), but I am enjoying it immensely.
