Early this afternoon—at about 12:15pm—I had an experience that I’ll never have again in my entire life. I embraced it calmly, perhaps unable to react because it didn’t seem real. Truthfully, as I write this about an hour later, it still hasn’t sunk in. I’m guessing later on it will—the realization growing as the day progresses. Maybe I’ll feel it this evening when I pop open a bottle of champagne. Its not that I’m not excited. I am excited! And I’m happy. It just doesn’t yet seem—real.
