I got home at 5 pm after a full day of taxis, airports, and planes. As these things go, it was easy -- Southwest has direct flights between Little Rock and Phoenix, so no connection anxiety intruded on my day.  Just long hours of grading papers, reading, sitting, waiting, driving.

But when I arrived home, there was ravioli and meatballs.  And my daughter had a new book of magic tricks.  And she was eager to work on her patter with me.  And she grinned knowingly as she insisted her fake shuffling was 100% all real.

It's all worth it.  I'm so glad to be home.
