"So do you have big plans for spring break?"
That's the prevailing question from my students and I answer "Yes".
I'm going to...
Clear out the last of the autumn leaves
that crowd my daffodils,
Catch up on grading papers--
yes, everything I assigned.
Launder the winter clothes,
pack them away, and store them in the attic
Do the income tax and e-file it,
for myself and a daughter of mine
Watch my grandchildren in their first
gig at the local nursing home
Visit my parents in real life, instead of just "online".
Is that big enough?
I think it's rather large compared with all those itty bitty ski trip plans so many people have.
