daily bliss: one day at a time

It sounds very cliche to take each day as it comes, one day at a time, but my recent illness has reminded me of this simple truth. At a particularly busy point in the semester--planning a campus poetry day (today), preparing for a conference in New Orleans (next week), and grading papers from 3 of my 4 classes (this weekend)--it's easy to be wrapped up in the stress of projection and wondering how I'll ever accomplish everything. I've been taking each day as it comes and trusting that everything necessary will somehow be done on time, and this new mindset is working fairly well, and my stress is minimized.
