Brazil in Beirut

In Terry Gilliam’s movie, Brazil one of the characters (Tuttle played by De Niro) is walking when a newspaper is blown against him just to cling to him while another does the same. More and more papers are thrust against him until he’s a walking mass of paper. Finally, all the papers are blown away to reveal that the man is no longer there.

That’s pretty much how I feel at this time of the year, when the semester is over, and I’m flooded with a mass of papers to grade. When the wind blows hard enough, and grades are turned in, I’ll be back.
