1. Reading closely, with my students, the Act I, ii soliloquy of Edmund as he argues his amoral devotion to Nature, nature which he defines as amoral, as the goddess of the strongest being the ones who survive. He is especially motivated by his hatred of custom which has branded his bastardy as base.
2. Reading my research writing students' intellectual, philosophical, educational autobiographies and learning about their backgrounds, ways of thinking, personalities, and experiences.
3. Making a stressed out Linda laugh when I said about a loud person we work with: He is risen, He is risen indeed. I think Sarah woke him up.
