Here we are in the study at home, Her Grace and I. I have been out a lot (meetings galore all week, a daylong diocesan committee retreat Saturday, chunks of time at the office including this afternoon and early evening) and Maya Pavlova, Feline Bishop Extraordinaire, is peacefully settled on a stack of papers on the desk. Her furry grey self is breathing steadily as I sit here revising a syllabus. Usually I play music when I do this kind of work, but we are just enjoying the silence here.
Earlier today I listened to this fine piece of jazz, courtesy of Dennis. That's Classy Dennis of Psychology, Dogs, Politics, and Wine, not Classy Dennis, Brother of Acts of Hope, who also loves jazz.
First day of class, tomorrow!
