May 17, 2016, Prescott- Things went better at work today, as I knew they would. Contrition replaced stridency, and my supervisor announced, at the start of the day, that no one would be allowed to talk politics in class.
My son had a successful laser eye treatment, this morning, and is now at his home, enjoying renewed clarity of vision. We had a fine conversation, this evening, as usual. He is proactive with his personal affairs, so I feel a firm foundation was set, both with our guidance and with our mistakes, from which he learned.
Preliminary job feelers have come out, regarding next academic year, from my current department. It’s nice to be again making a good impression. I would be primarily responsible for helping a young autistic man, with academics and life skills, and, by extension, working with others who need academic assistance. The process should take not much more than a week.
I have been admonished by some who feel I am too busy. Well, there is always a lot going on, but here I am with the free time to write, in clear-headed fashion. There are end-of-year events, this week and next, along with a charity dinner for the family of a woman who died from childbirth complications. I will need to get my vehicle serviced on Friday, and head to an old stomping ground, Keams Canyon, on Saturday, to support Baha’is who have moved there recently, at a devotional meeting they are having. Then, once school is done, it’ll be time to help a friend in Reno move to Carson City.
Busy, somewhat, but feeling productive is a good thing, for me.
NEXT: Another hike along Prescott Circle, this time in Granite Basin.
