My Temporarily Empty Nest

According to Flyte Tracker, my daughter is now somewhere over Arkansas (at least I think it’s Arkansas; geography was never my strong suit). She’s on her way to orientation at ASU in Tempe on a (much delayed) flight from DC to Phoenix. My college roommate, who was considerate enough to move to nearby Chandler, AZ, will be putting my daughter up for the weekend, and, as she put it, taking good care of my baby. So I guess this weekend I get to practice being an empty nester.

Oh brave new world that has so few creatures in it!

Guess I’ll have to go write some.
