24 hours ago our friend successfully came out of open heart surgery which included a replacement of an aortic valve. Three days ago I became aware of the passing of an old college friend, who, unbeknownst to me, was a college professor for 25 years in the College of Education at the very university my son attended. One hour ago my dear friend and colleague gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.
All of this in the context of the explosion of spring.
There is mystery and inspiration in the reading of confluence.
