Stranded at sea, everything's going to be alright

Through the wonders of modern technology, I am writing to you from a cruise ship just off the coast of the United States. We are THAT ship - the Carnival Ecstacy - that cannot port in Charleston.
Hurricane Matthew has us stuck out here. There is a group of us from Laurens County who cannot get home. The Coast Guard and the Port of Charleston must do a post-Matthew assessment. They might let us dock Monday.

I will do better - promise

 

Today, I am disappointed with myself. Coming off a very active May 13 - not an unlucky day, by any stretch of the imagination - and working a seven-hour shift covering the Presbyterian College Commencement on May 14, I hit the wall.

The Author Has Died

Pat Conroy has died, and I must write.

It is so totally inconvenient. It's been a long week. I'm sitting here with a mug of tea that is guaranteed to put me to sleep. I should be in the other room watching Criminal Minds. I've just come back from a dinner with interesting people, brought together by an interesting situation, a place where Pat would love to hold court. I'm body and brain tired. I just HAVE TO put these few thoughts down on what passes for paper in these digital times we live in. Pat Conroy was my college commencement speaker.
