R & R

We just spent two sweet days in a cabin in the woods, at Murphin Ridge Inn (75 miles east of our home in the city of Cincinnati). My husband and I both felt our anxiety and stress disappear. The place has miles of hiking trails, and at times you can get away from any human sounds at all. While I do love my fellow people, we live where traffic and ambulance noises are almost ceaseless, so this peace and quiet is a soul-strengthening relief.
Ah but back in the thick of things now -- I have about 135 students in four classes (I'm a professor at the University of Cincinnati), for whom I have to come up with final grades between now and December 15th or so.
Better get to it...........
