This term has been absolutely manic. I’ve been teaching for the first time, writing, working, and trying to keep my social life (or, what I think is a social life) afloat.
That being said I have had a wonderful term alongside some wonderful people.
One of the best things to happen this term is my dear friends Whitney and Strasz got married in the beautiful St Olaves Church. I managed to snap a few photos so I will share them here although I am sure the photographer will have many much better ones (and more of the Bride and Groom!)
Illuminating York happened again.
On Dale’s Birthday we went to Jorvik: The Viking Centre. The centre is great but to dark and crowded for photos, but at the special exhibit, Valhalla, I got some pictures of York Stone normally kept in the crypt at the Minster.
And on the way saw a replica of the Sutton Hoo Helmet!
I am currently in London preparing to fly to California tomorrow. As I write this, I am siting in the British Library with a cappuccino and cake remembering how lucky I am to be able to research what I love and to see lovely things as often as I do, especially with the brilliant people I have in my life. I am so glad to be headed to another lovely place and see more lovely people.
But for tonight I will head to an old church in order to hear some folk music!
