Fi-i-i-i-i-i-ve mo-ore days...

Here's why I love the Hofstra law library more than just about anything else here--or anywhere, for that matter.

In the middle of the library, in a well-traveled open area that just about every law student passes through multiple times every week, let alone this exam period, they have put out a huge jigsaw puzzle on a table with a sign that says, "Need a study break?" And people have slowly bit by bit been making their contribution and putting the puzzle together over a several-day period. I just passed by on my way into the computer lab and noticed a great deal of progress has been made. The puzzle is a Mary Engelbreit picture, and you can now read the quote on it: "Leisure, some degree of it, is necessary to the health of every man's spirit."


I really, really like the law library folk. A lot. On the library's blog they recently posted a "virtual study break," the most recent pictures of the earth taken from the space shuttle by the astronauts who are working at the international space station. The blog writer noted about the astronauts, "They--like many of us--are scheduled to return to Earth on December 21."
