What will you do this summer?
BackstoryThis question was posed by a colleague today. In the academic world, this is a legitimate question: January is the time to apply for sabbaticals, research grants, institutes, workshops, and -- in many cases -- pitch courses to teach in summer term. But I found myself speechless as I pondered his question: what will I do with summer? In the end, I replied, "Ooh... that's a dangerous question. Utter your plans aloud and hear God laugh, right? I honestly don't know."
But I'd love to hear your plans, if you are looking ahead to summer, Smith community.
