Feast Your Eyes

It is arguably the prettiest time of year on campus right now. Tons and tons of tulips popping up in flower beds (and red, my favorite!), the trees are flowering, and Mother So Dear is looking *fabulous*.

Had an impromptu visit from some students, which was a delightful break in my day. Asked them what the temperature was on campus re: stress level and the looming end of the semester.  From their vantagepoint, it sounds like the end-of-semester pinch has started in earnest. Lots of late nights for people working on projects.

Our time together reminded me how it is good to take a break from work every now and again – whether that is a conversation with a friend(s), a walk to find the best of the blooming tulips, or just to have a few mindful moments to make your day better.

Enjoy a look at some of the sights your Deacs are seeing, courtesy of all-around-awesome Ken Bennett.
