Not that I should complain, it is excellent weather this year for writing those two essays I must finish before the end of the summer. No need to gaze wistfully out the window. This pic shows the current character of the cloud cover. The first essay is due August 20th, but I would prefer to finish it by the end of next week if possible to get some vacation time without scholarly work. The other one is due October 1st.
I am seriously contemplating doing something else than being a teacher/researcher at Uppsala university. When I was young, the summers were all devoted to studies or work, now that I have reached midlife I spend them writing those pieces I never seem to get the time to do during other parts of the year. It's okey in the winter, but I am more and more annoyed by missing out the better part of spring and most of the summer due to scholarly duties.
