Ha. Meant to post this yesterday. But it works today just as well…
Wow. Still warm and fuzzy from yesterday’s bumper crop of birthday greetings. Gotta love that social in "social media". Thanks, everyone!

For me, Monday is catch-up day. Clear the inbox, review projects, clear down the to-dos and administrative bits. What’s it like for you?

“The miracle of your mind isn’t that you can see the world as it is. It’s that you can see the world as it isn’t. We can remember the past, and we can think about the future, and we can imagine what it’s like to be some other person in some other place. And we all do this a little differently… and yeah, you know it is also why we get things wrong.”
Kathryn Schulz: On Being Wrong.
And I’m thinking about this as a reminder to my students to keep an open mind, and go in fear of always thinking that you’re right, or even that it’s most important to be right all of the time.
