catching up: friday at SHARP

After giving my paper Friday morning, I had a good day, hearing a number of interesting presentations. I did receive several kind and helpful comments on my paper, and I feel confident now as I work on revising it into an article.

After all the sessions were finished, there was a very nice reception in the Margaret Fowler Garden, and then several of us walked into the Claremont “village” for dinner at Yianni’s Greek Restaurant. Sauteed calamari and ouzo: what more could one ask for?
