But with the end of the spring semester comes the anticipation of summer. It is one of the joys of teaching, being part of a cycle that accompanies the seasons and the marking of these changes. I'm sure you remember it too, when school ended and you began to anticipate the coming of the warm months, endless days outdoors, trips to the beach and long evenings. I always feel lucky to still participate in that ritual cycle.
Thank you, class, for a great semester. Enjoy your summer!
