I’ve known this for years, but it’s always worth saying again: I am a lucky guy. Here are a few proofs: I’m sitting, at this moment, in a pleasantly snug house on a frosty morning, a lamp is lighting the room in a warm way, my best friend is near and never far away, my classroom in a kindhearted school is waiting for me, the students will show me the blessings of their special lives, breezes will bend the branches of trees, birds will flutter at the feeder, far-off towns and cities will send their high-spirits to the skies, distant stars will always shine, while I’m in a welcoming room walking coolheadedly through books with my students. Again: I am a lucky guy.
