Instead, I have been researching legends about Na’ama. Because that is way more interesting than management theory. It’s actually about the same level of interesting as ancient library history, but I can’t research that at the reference desk as effectively, because so much of it isn’t really available online. (The great library at Ur had some of its tablets cataloged by keyword! They seem to have abandoned that idea fairly quickly, possibly because of how much less sense it makes when dealing with clay tablets rather than online databases.)
We went for a tour of the mikveh in Newton last night. It’s a really lovely place; very peaceful. It seemed particularly appropriate to go then, because it was rather enthusiastically raining, so we could see the trough where the rain collected and then the big handle you turn to let it into the pool.
I think my brain hasn’t figured out this whole time-change thing yet. It’s already twilight by the time I get out of work, so by the time we’ve finished dinner, my internal clock thinks it’s bedtime and I can’t focus on anything. Grr.
