Soothing the troubled brow

I needed a bit of distraction after another faculty meeting. Inevitably, in my experience, as soon as departments start talking about root-and-branch reorganization of degree structures, it quickly becomes clear that the existing tolerance, more or less, of current arrangements in facts hides really quite deep disagreements about what we should really be doing, and why. The more you talk about possible changes, the less chance of coming to a happy consensus. Still, twenty minutes playing around making a few desktop pictures helped sooth the troubled brow afterwards. This is the view from San Gusmè near Siena, very early on an August morning this summer. 


Now back to ACA0 ...
