On the day before my birthday ...
  1. Finished a draft of the introduction in a book on Reiner Schürmann I am trying to finish this summer.
  2. Had an impromptu birthday celebration with my staff.
    Chocolate was involved.
  3. Saw my friend Rick Lee.
    Talked to his graduate seminar via video conference about creating an online scholarly presence.
  4. Received a very kind and thoughtful note from the summer Advancement interns about their visit to my office.
  5. Took an evening walk with my wife.
