Day before Classes

Monday, the 19th, was Martin Luther King Day. It’s a nice day and a needed opportunity to honor a remarkable man. Despite the honoring of the Reverend King, the most important thing for me was a remark that I always think of before the start of a semester or other important event: In Lord of the Rings, Return of the King, Gandalf speaks to Pippin at Minas Tirith as the army from Mordor approaches. Pippin comments “It’s so quiet.” Gandalf responds by saying “It’s the deep breath before the plunge.” Monday was the last day before my semester began. It was a great opportunity to take a deep breath, get my stuff organized, and get ready for a good semester. Let’s make this a fun semester!
