A poem from the bard for Valentines Day,

Happy Valentines day to all.

Sonnet 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

Happy Valentine's Day, Donna--

I stuck a note on the nccat site to say that you are starting a blog, but you might write the other seminar members a note...

Hi Marly,

Thanks for the comment. I will try to e-mail the other members this weekend. I have been meaning to do that anyway.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Hi Donna!

I received the email and finally had a chance to check out your blog spot. As always, you are the queen. I'm working toward re-disciplining (is that a word) myself to write daily. Not just grade papers. I think I'm going to have the kids do that this week to give them a break from prompts.
