The snow melted and left behind an icy mix covered in the most unbearable November darkness. As a last line of defence, I make some more hot veggies and pick up an old book by Leonard Cohen. The last time I read it, it was springtime in New York and I was just about to move back to Europe.

Small things to make the world shimmer for a second, as if it was within my power to do that.

In three months I will be back in New York for a night before the conference madness begins down in Baltimore. This time I will serve as chair and discussant for two different panels in addition to my own presentation at the ISA. Kind of overwhelming considering that I will have 125+ take-home exams to mark the week before...
