Not long now ...

Andrew and I will be picking up Eric soon, then we're off to Philadelphia International to grab Mo. From there it's a late night drive to Boston and the final two days of the APA where we'll meet up with Diane and Jessica.

Better late than never, right?

Aaron here,
Hey I forgot my password, but I wanted to share something I just wrote with you (all)...
I just wrote my first line of Dactyllic Hexameter! Can someone check it just to make sure I am right? I just don't trust myself on meter. It is a translation of an important philosophical principle:

An 'inner process' stands in need of outer criteria:
corporeas cupiunt normas animi rationes

The line scans fine (ooh, that rhymes). Nice hyperbaton, by the way. Reggie would approve.

: corporeas cupiunt normas animi rationes

« corporeas cupiunt » forms a perfect hemiepes, and « normas animi rationes » a perfect paroemiac, which makes this an exquisite example of hexameter verse, further highlighted by the fact that the object opens and the subject closes each half of the line:

hemiepes:    corporeas   cupiunt
paroemiac:   normas       animi rationes

Artfully done, Magister Coke.
