The coming week is the most exciting one all year in Annapolis…usually. Things are not usual now, and to dwell on it might not be the best use of time and energy. I am sad about it, I just can’t lie. It will be hard this week, but I am choosing to concentrate on what is happening rather than what is not happening…and it’s not so bad, different but not bad. Next year we won’t take any of it for granted and that might make it even better.
