Gone to a Happy Place

Emily's Gazebo

I’m sure the world is still falling apart and the sky is still falling somewhere, but I don’t care. I’m in a hotel right across the street from the riverfront gazebo where one of my nieces got married. I just had dinner with one of my best ever students, and I am getting ready to go to a conference session that sounds like it will be interesting and entertaining and all things good.

Besides all that, my mother intervened in my plan to ignore my sore throat until it either magically disappeared or escalated into pneumonia. I’ve taken some antibiotics, and I am feeling better. That’s why my mother is cooler than your mother.

I haven’t accomplished a thing today other than arriving at a happy place. I’d say that’s a good day’s effort. I might as well say that. It’s all you’re getting from me today regardless.
