If you can forgive me…

…a little literary self-indulgence:

I find myself tripping over the female writers of the past. The immense weight of their skill and talent, too powerful to be ignored by a readily dismissive society – how can I ever hope to make even a fraction of the mark they did? I am altogether inspired and discouraged by those who precede me.

And in case anyone has been wondering, regular posting will resume next week. It’s midterm week and I’m so overwhelmed, there is no cliche sufficient to describe it.
