I worked tonight, my real-er job, and had a great evening. J was in flying spirits, and we had many laughs. I had to take him to school, and because it was the first night there, there were new people to be introduced and everyone sat together with their tutors and took turns telling the room what the best part of their summer was. One woman said she’d been to Florida and enjoyed walking on the beach. The young man sitting across from me, closed his eyes and said in a very passionate voice “That’s MY dream!”
It was just so sweet and charming. I haven’t stopped smiling since.
