This might actually work. This might actually happen. After all this, this might actually come to be. A few weeks more. A window to reply to the external letters until next week, at which point a report. A window to reply to the report until the following week. And the week that follows that week, the first round of three, the first (sort of) ex nihilo round of judgment and assessment. Don’t jinx it. This might actually work. This might actually happen. The letters, after 4 readings, continue to surprise. People I barely or don’t know at all weigh in on the work, my work, now less possessive and more public. I made my peace with being a public person, but apparently I wasn’t as clear on the work, now a month away from covers and binding, itself being public, itself being something that is no longer only me, only mine. The students, both graduate and undergraduate, just make me love them more. But their letters say they already know that. Confused. Emotionally exhausted. Endgame.
