Delicious Ambiguity

As you slog your way through the snow and the grading and the (hypothetical) curriculum reconstruction this week, I hope you will take a moment to wire your brain for positive thoughts. I don't have much to say today - I'm feeling a little beat down myself - but I watched this TED talk last night and it was just the tidbit I needed to get my head straight.

Make it a good day (sometimes I really am talking to myself),

Mark
