Wednesday, May 3

this time, it's official

I defend my thesis at 11 a.m. Central time today. I can't believe my three years in an (coughivory towercough) MFA program are really finishing up--not to mention that this really could be the last spring I spend in a university. It's a strange thought.

In recognition of this most solemn moment, I give you one of the most shocking discoveries of recent times: a fragment of tapestry that better allows scholars to understand true Medieval culture. Click to enlarge/examine closely.

(Originally found here.)

Wish me luck!

Hope all goes well. Just think of the new opportunities you now have - not what's ending.
