The Open Polytechnic semester should have started for the year. It works on a website forum rather than teleconference, as far as I can tell. I have no idea what is going on. Somebody will make noises eventually about what we should be doing. The lecturer was in Dunedin briefly last week. There was no chance to meet her. I expect I will eventually.

My mother rang last night. She found the competition quote in Tennyson’s big poem In Memoriam. So I have sent away the wrong answer! Posted a second answer.

If it’s any consolation I prefer The Prelude by Wordsworth over Tennyson.
