cat hair and english 151

Mismatched, clean, colorful towels drying in the warm afternoon sun.  Washing machine churning away at the load of laundry Ivan brought from his dad’s house.  Chock full of cat hair. 

 A juicy purple plum has me typing with one hand. 

English professor, fat vocabulary, wrinkled linen clothing, long skirt, funny shoes, unkempt hair, eyes twinkling with mischief and passion, mouth talking excitedly, promises we will love what we read this semester.  Homer, “The Odyssey”, James Joyce, “A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man”, Flannery O’Connor, “A Good Man is Hard to Find and other stories”, William Shakespeare, “The Tempest”, Billy Collins, “The Trouble With Poetry and Other Poems”, Barbara Kingsolver, “Prodigal Summer”.  I believe her.
