These are pretty much not good times around my house. Everyone is stressed and busy and exhausted, and it’s a time of the year that is the anniversary of very bad times not counting the brand new bad times being minted every day lately. Despite all that, I just had a moment.
I’ve been up and coding and testing for many hours, and on the way to the bathroom I stopped and looked out at the patio. The sun was shining just so that everything was bright and golden, birds were singing their hearts out all over the feeder and trees and bush, my dog is lying on the couch snoring and all is right in this tiny corner of the world. It’s good to be alive, and I’m glad I’m here.
