For the #MLA, this time without the kids...
A lovely reunion with Ra and then with Ro; made me feel like a grad student at Oxford all over again.
Later, I was explaining the difference between Ra and other advisors I've had to someone at a gathering and termed it being the recipient of "both brilliance and a kind of affection" and happened to look up to catch Ra's eye. Whereupon, she smiled and said, "you can use the l-word, you know." All the happy feelings.
