a very long Tuesday

I know, of course, that the Very Long Tuesday is the flip side of the non-Friday ten days ago - all the same, it's mind-bending to think that this was the view from our balcony, overlooking Coogee Bay, this morning - followed by fruit salad and yogurt and muesli and honey and cappuccinos at the Barzura, followed by a van ride to the airport with the radio playing "Mrs Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter" and inviting Mrs Browns who happen to have Lovely Daughters to call in - something that put us in a complete time warp.   Followed by 13 hours flight to LAX (lots of prime teaching-prep time), then a cancelled flight (thank you, yesterday's power outage at EWR), so I had to come back via DFW - and then a light new snow covering and a freezing cold wind at Newark, New Jersey Transit and a bizarrely cheerful East European cab driver ...
