A week from today at this time, J~ and I will be on a plane, on our way to Mexico, while B~, his son, is on a bus, beginning a week-long field trip with his school. We planned this vacation a month ago, and I keep meaning to mention it to you, dear readers, but more pressing topics have always come to mind.
At this point, nothing seems more pressing than a few days on the beach.
I'm sure I'll have more to say about recent events in the near future, but for now, my thoughts are these:
We are all learning. We all have blind spots. I am no exception.
Everyone deserves to be treated with discretion and respect.
Honesty is, by far, the best policy.
I am grateful for every piece of honest feedback I ever receive, even when the message is difficult to hear.
Life, and everything that it entails, makes for a very wild ride. Sometimes thrilling, sometimes nauseating, and thankfully, not over yet.
