Some of us in Minnesota are really getting sick of winter! I spent last month teaching Sustainable Enterprise in J-term, and working around class cancellations due to weather. I’m happy to report that we seem to be getting a break this week, with a possible three-day stretch of temps above freezing. Yes folks, not just above zero – above freezing!
One thing I am trying as a winter coping mechanism is to have a weekly tea time for colleagues in my building at Hamline – “weekly tea in GLC.” Hopefully we can take an hour or so out of our hectic weeks and relax over tea and snacks and spend some time connecting with each other as colleagues and friends across departments and disciplines. Already I’ve gotten some great leads on books and articles for follow up on the Sustainability theme. So wherever you are – try to take time out for tea this winter!
