Happy Bilbo and Frodo’s birthday. We got donuts to celebrate in a truly hobbitish fashion. Beyond that, there hasn’t been any time for Middle-earthy reflection, alas. It’s the first week of teaching and going to back to F2F teaching at two schools with all the Covid protocols is hitting me like a tone of bricks. But the donuts are welcome. I may even have second donut in the true hobbitish fashion.
