I shipped an important package today. It will take about 8 months before I know the result of its contents. But I want to remind myself, here and now, I know the results already. I love to teach, I am always thinking of new ways to reach and help students, try to support my colleagues, and keep my sanity in the process. Sometimes I don’t do a very good job at any of those pursuits, but I earnestly do try. So, I’m going to send myself a message, a telegram, a signal, a flare: Job well done, my dear. It’s going to be all right.
