The last few days in Texas we’ve had gentle weather. Air is a bit dry, but the sun is rarely overpowering and the breeze feels good. Campus is green for the most part despite the drought.
Of course, we need rain. We need the prospect of growth. Ay, there’s the rub. Things feel good now. There’s lots of reading and writing, even some sharing and thinking. But you’d be hard pressed to get me to say that “gentle weather” means “things are good.” In fact, I’d say this is the precisely the time things need to change.
