The weeks are rushing by in a haze of teaching, meeting, grading, emailing, phone banking, hosting, organizing, and cleaning.
So little moments really matter right now. Starting braised short ribs in the oven on a late Tuesday morning. Getting the car washed. Hanging out at a Friday football game. Lighting a couple of fall candles as we spend Sunday getting ready for the week ahead.
Honestly, I am a little overwhelmed, but taking a moment to stop, document, and appreciate these bits of life helps make everything a lot better.
