Now—for a breath I tarry
Nor yet disperse apart—
Take my hand quick and tell me,
What have you in your heart.
Speak now, and I will answer;
How shall I help you, say;
Ere to the wind’s twelve quarters
I take my endless way.
—A. E. Housman. “A Shropshire Lad.”
I’m Chera. Some of the titles I have are teacher, librarian, gamer, singer, auntie, and cat’s human. I teach writing and literature and work in a university library’s special collections at a couple of universities in North Texas. I have a PhD in medieval literature and am working on a master’s in Library Science.
The purpose of this blog is to be an outlet for the thoughts in my head that – I hope – will be interesting for others. These posts might be about teaching, what I’m reading, playing, knitting, or life in general. Or about my cat. (I’m only a little obsessed.)
All photos are taken by me, unless otherwise noted.
