It?s the week before teaching starts again and I?m staring at a ?to do? list that somehow managed to increase in size over the winter break. That?s never good, especially when that list includes a few book reviews and a short article. I had hoped that the coming semester would be a relatively quiet one, but that looks unlikely. Teaching-wise, I have my usual seminar course and my lecture course on Origins, Evolution & Creation, so there shouldn?t be a huge amount of preparation involved there. It?s the other stuff – particularly talks and conferences – that are going to be time-consuming. Onward!
