There is a typhoon on the way. That is apparent. It is wet outside, great weather for ducks, not quite so for commuters.
Nonetheless, today is a public holiday, 'respect for the aged' day but, as is the way with my employer, we have classes scheduled as usual. This means that the upside of a rainy commute is there is a greater likelihood of getting a seat early on in the 50 minute journey.
Which I did. Right from the start.
Although I didn't have classes (mine are on Tuesday to Friday), I still had fine-tuning to do for the first of my lecture course (as opposed to tutes and seminars until now).
And a few opportunities to keep an eye on things outside...including a bit of an emergency response...
|Patterns under the bridge|
|Out in a hurry...|
|And back, a few hours later, emergency averted?|
There remains that element of anticipation and anxiety in equal parts as I prepare for the lecture, three hours in total...wondering if I have enough material, on balance, to make the class interesting.
I guess we'll find out Wednesday. At least for now, I'm sitting comfortably.
