Another Good Day

Today I pressed forward with the preparations for my class. Though I haven't quite ironed out the structure of the semester, I have created a first paper topic and study questions for A Clockwork Orange, study questions on two chapters from Foucault's Discipline and Punish, and tomorrow will work on reading over an article about the Stanford Prison Study and a video on the subject and preparing study questions and perhaps a paper topic on that. Then I will read a book on the Forgiveness Instinct posited by a biologist, and make up study questions on that. I will then be ready to make a syllabus.
After the finished the study questions, I read a new Byatt book, The Children's Book, for a while, and drove off to Laguna for rope yoga. After yoga, I met up with R and M for dinner. We planned to try that new place, House of Big Fish and Ice Cold Beer, but it was mobbed. Another time. A lovely evening, with a rainbow, and some actual rain!

I've heard good things about the Byatt...glad your summer is proceeding to include such books, yoga and time in Laguna.
