Excited about today. Looking forward to teaching Horace, Odes 1.11, "carpe diem," at the optional lunchtime sight reading session. The greater Asclepiadean meter is very Lerner and Loewe, very Rogers and Hammerstein, circa My Fair Lady, circa South Pacific.
Even excited about afternoon review for Monday's exam. We'll be reading a continuous passage of about 150-200 words, in relatively simple Latin (but with plenty of sophisticated syntax), about the last days of Cicero and his death.
