Krakow tomorrow

so I am off to Krakow tomorrow. Maybe see an art gallery. Maybe update my book of kells tattoo.

I keep wondering about tefl as a career. How long can I go? how low can i go? Maybe it is possible if i just stop reading all the complaints about low pay on Dave's ESL.

The whole time I kept thinking I was working for something more interesting. Getting advanced degrees in English and writing.

Life circles.

These TEFL jobs have some good things. Like time to write. One trade off for another.

Yes.

Ride it. Bag it. Bog it.

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
