Sunrise and sunset

Not much to share because yesterday fell into pieces. This was yesterday's sunset:

Yesterday fell apart because we found out mid-afternoon that the entire spring term--ten weeks--will be online. I had just yesterday morning finished recording the first three weeks and was relieved it was over. So now I will be recording the rest of the term, and revising assignments. I also let in five more students who needed classes after study abroad was cancelled, so now I have 45 students in one class and 20 in the other. It's going to be bumpy.

After I learned this, I asked Tim to go for a walk on the beach just to get away.  It was a lovely afternoon (and the beach was pretty busy for a Thursday, but I think people wanted to take advantage of a nice day). This little video is a bit of peace--it is a little stream headed to the ocean.

I woke up at 4am and knew I wasn't going to get back to sleep, so I just got up and started working. I was rewarded with this:

And realized how lucky I am. I need to hold on to that.

Find peace today friends.

What a beautiful area. Aren’t you glad you have your coast house and have the opportunity to work from there!

Yes. We need to hold on to gratitude these days. Stay strong, Kim -- and stay well.
