Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

The Burdens of Administration

There was a time in my life when I thought it would be wonderful to work in a University, not necessarily teaching but may be in administering student affairs, working with and for young adults. Alas, I was seduced for a wider calling and the idea of quiet study in a lovely oak lined office, the Ministry. That was a fantasy that soon ran into reality.

Below is a letter from a student affairs administrator at Durham University in Britain. I burst out laughing when I read it. I can only imagine having to write it. What makes it doubly funny for me is that it is signed by "P. Robinson". No! it is not me.
