Flannery O'Conner once said, “Learn to write a story, and then learn some more from the story you’ve written.”

On a day that seemed long I felt a bit under the weather I wondered if I would find something to be thankful for and then I ran across this quote in an email inviting me to a welcome back reception at school.

Today is day 15.

I'm so grateful to be in a place that esteems the power of stories. I have no idea what will come of this story but I am grateful for the journey.
