“Leaving on a jet plane . . . ” was used by Lucy Calkins in her Reading opening keynote on Sunday, June 22, 2014, but that sounds easier than reality. Thanks to the hurricane and storms in the Midwest, many planes were grounded or crews were in the wrong location on Thursday, July 3rd. So here’s to an extended stay in New York City.
Thanks to my sister’s generosity, this was my Thursday evening view (July 3) after I checked into my hotel.
One hour . . .
Sixty minutes . . .
Three thousand, six hundred seconds.
Snoopy would say, “It was a dark and stormy night!
Do you see that thin gray line across the horizon? That thin strip was the little bit of daylight left hanging around!

A day of promise!
