This blog is named for a poem that I encountered in high school and that I have always remembered. Although the Christmas imagery does not mean a great deal to me, the idea of facing a great distance certainly does. I have crossed the distance presented by my PhD, my postdocs, and now face the glacial distance of my pre-tenure period. I would not object to a bit of guidance during that time.
“A Christmas Tree” by William Burford
If you are
A love compassionate,
You will walk with us this year.
We face a glacial distance, who are here
At your feet.
