Dreams On Ice

Heard a great quote this week from Niko Kazantzakis, the amazing author of Zorba the Greek and The Last Temptation of Christ. (He's the man who referred to life as "the whole catastrophe.") He said even on your death bed, you should be ready for a fresh start. That's me! But my hopes of a big change this year have, alas, been dashed. That post at the University of British Columbia on which I had my sights has been suspended due to the hiring freeze. Seems UBC invested all its money in buildings and neglected to budget for staff. Clever, eh?

Is it a teaching post?

Well I'm sad to report UBC isn't the only clever university out there....
