Concentrating on writing this week has paid off – I finally have a good draft of the gospel metaphor paper, something I would not be completely embarassed to send out. Note, of course, that I have not been encamped in my office for five days, given what I said a few posts back. That’s the thing about self-imposed deadlines – I always miss them, but by setting them, I gain enough momentum that it all gets done anyway.
In the next week or two, I’m going to get very sad, as several of my favorite TV shows are ending seasons. Lost has set up a huge 3rd season finale. Heroes is ending its 1st. And the Sopranos is about to end for good – I might write a lengthy reflection on it after it passes.
