On my way home tonight from the CSSF summer program's scholarship hall, a fox trotted across the road in front of me. This is in the middle of Lawrence, KS. I slowed down and pulled over, only to notice that this one little fox had joined up with THREE OTHERS! I've been seeing them almost every night. They look much healthier and larger than they did last year, and their tails now display big red poofs of fur in the middle.
No way could I have gotten a photo of them, so small and silent-swift in the night, so here's my little fox friend from a couple of years ago in the Colorado Rockies:
Life update: Yes, the Workshop is a wrap, and it was just wonderful this year. Two writers from Canada, one from South Africa, and several from across the USA brought unique writing styles and critique POVs, and it was a joy. Tiring as all get-out, but just great. The Campbell Conference in its new digs was lovely, our guests charmed all and the attendees had great conversations, and everyone made it home safely. Right now the SF Teaching Institute is underway, and the discussants are so lively that just a few questions keep us going for three hours... and then into dinner and lunch the next day.
Pics to come of the events.
In summary: Hooray foxes! Hooray SF!
