The day began yesterday, although I'm not sure if it's yet tomorrow... I got to see this beautiful Wisconsin icon at the VA hospital this morning. The artwork was done by someone who I respect and care for deeply. Every time I walked by it I am awestruck by the artistic vision of @igc_vet_art_expo. While some may not find my appreciation of her dedicated work exciting, it is probably because they don't know the person on the other side of the paintbrush. Made up for an otherwise frustrating visit.
As I jetted off to work, I got excited by a text and the prospect of having a chance to talk with @illwilll_ about life and the future. It was even more amazing that I got to spend a little time making faces at his daughter Ella, and that she wasn't completely scared of my ogrish appearance. Sadly, they had to leave before she made any effort to tug on my beard. It's the little things and little people in life that matter.
At the end the "work" day, I spent the 6 hours reading and writing, with a little more writing and rewriting mixed in. I cannot begin to describe how grateful I was for the surprise gift from @liz.soter of some frozen custard around 2030. It helped me to refocus and push through to get my work done.
As I finished up, I got to have a brief conversation with one of the evening staff. We discussed the work I was doing and why it is I remain committed to the students I serve. In that moment, it all just kind of made sense.
Not a bad start to tomorrow or a bad end to today.
