The last loveliest smile

Very Grateful for:

God’s opportunities

The distinction between blessings and opportunities

An uncharacteristically kind comment from one of my professors

Khan Academy vids to help me understand Stats

Discovering that West with the Night by Beryl Markham was available free with Kindle Unlimited

Teeny, tiny flowers on the basil plant

Amelia, quietly washing all the dishes while I typed in a frenzy


The kind girl at Starbucks this morning, early, who graciously listened to me say “hope you have a nice Wednesday”

Autumn. The year’s last, loveliest smile. ~William Cullen Bryant
