I had a lot on my plate that day. I’d chosen a seat in the student center so I could drink some coffee while I worked, and I was hoping I could avoid people long enough to get some work done. Typically, however, such attempts were unsuccessful, and that day was no exception.
The time is 10:03 am on Monday, October 19. I’m sitting in a little coffee shop in Shreveport, Louisiana. Ordinarily, I’d be doing some last minute edits before updating this blog, but, as I’m sitting here, these are the only words on the page. And I’m fine with that.
