The Light at the End of the Tunnel
I just hope it's not an oncoming train...
Last night I finished the remaining reading for the class I'm taking this semester (Art History - Ancient to Medieval), so all that remains this semester is a one-page write-up and an exam (which mercifully isn't comprehensive). The write-up is on some medieval manuscripts we viewed at the Harry Ransom Center here on the UT campus. Some are facsimilies of well-known manuscripts in other countries, such as The Book of Kells and The Book of Durrow. But, we have some originals too, although only one was on display for the class (The Belleville Hours, 15th century). While I was poking around the HRC's website I saw all sorts of things I had no idea were sitting just on the other side of campus from my office.
Once the semester is over, it will be time to finish the shopping and get the cards in the mail and get ready for some holiday travel.
For all of you who are nearing the end of the semester or term before a holiday or winter break, Good Luck!
