Things are looking pretty good, from where I sit. I’ve settled into my new office, which is small by the standards of our building, but huge by any reasonable standard, and which has both north- and west-facing windows (giving lots of sunshine and cross-breezes) and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. The new locale has even inspired some actual work today; I’m happy as a clam.
To top it all off, I just received an email message, the details of which I won’t reveal — but I will say that the message contains both good news about my new project and a potential opportunity for my old, and so I’m feeling all-around pretty optimistic this afternoon.
I’ve decided that there needs to be invented some sunshine-oriented version of “when it rains, it pours.” Is there such a phrase? Or are we so much more cautious with our optimism than with our pessimism that no one has tempted fate by imagining that good things might also come in threes?
