Got to work at 1:00 to find a message on my voice-mail from my boss. Turns out the work we'd gotten was a side-effect of something else, and it had no priority at all. So I wound up just staying for a mere two hours to clean up other stuff that was due Tuesday, then left.
And driving back along the Mississippi River, I spotted a Bald Eagle just coasting along the ridge, going south like I was, hardly even beating its wings. Wonderful!
And a blessing as well. If I'd left any other time, or not gone at all, I would have missed it.
