I stepped out at 4am just now to leave my graded papers on Mickey's desk so that he can go over the grades when he comes in early after I've gone to bed late. It's an arrangement that works for our different sleep schedules. I disturbed a homeless man sleeping in my entryway as I stepped out. He didn't make a move, but when I returned just now, he was out and walking the sidewalk outside the building, and paused, just around the corner of the entryway as I unlocked the inner door and let myself into the lobby and the elevator, waiting to take his spot again without me seeing and perhaps calling the police. It's gotta be zero fahrenheit with the wind outside right now. And suddenly I'm reminded: student loan debt, medical bills, they don't matter--I couldn't be any more grateful for all the advantages I have.
