I recently went to Bangor, Wales for a conference. On the day before the conference, I climbed Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales. Wordsworth wrote about his experience climbing Snowdon in The Prelude.

I’m trying to put a brave face on midterm paper grading. That’s hard to do.

NYC – August 2011

We did a good bit of museum hopping on this trip. Among our destinations was the Museum of the Moving Image, which is a fascinating place. In the lobby, there is an exhibit that both celebrates and satirizes the proliferation of video memoirs on the web, Christopher Baker’s “Hello World! or: How I Learned to Stop Listening and Love the Noise.” The work is relevant to my own memoir project.

I managed to score tickets to “The Daily Show.” Jon Stewart did not disappoint. See the full episode here.

On Thursday, the weather finally cooperated. Here’s Beth at the Central Park fountain.

We caught the Brain Exhibit at the Museum of Natural History before heading home.

NYC – April 2011

We just returned from another rainy but good trip to New York. A few highlights: Mike Birbiglia’s one-man show at the Barrow Street Theater; the Museum of Natural History; the Fresh & Onlys concert at Williamsburg Music Hall; Central Park. Here are the clichéd but inevitable pictures in the park.
