Vacation is at an end. Tomorrow I go back to work. It will be day 50 of my tai chi routine, and seven weeks or so until school’s end.

It was a good vacation. I saw the VanGogh exhibit in Philadelphia, climbed a small mountain in Massachusetts, contradanced, marked an astronomical event with cheer, celebrated a friend’s fiftieth birthday, reconciled with another old friend, wrote a poem, got my computer fixed, ate a lot of good food, and hung out with my dad. It was a lot to pack into a week.

Back to work.
