So exhausted today...

My parents got Quinn's room cleaned out today--dressers and closets emptied, etc., so we have some room there.  I pretty much failed at my goal of cleaning out our room.  What I did instead:  fell asleep for several hours.  My main problem is a surfeit of completely uncategorized papers ranging from long-term files to immediate bills--including the stupid parking ticket from DC that needs to be appealed by NLT 8 Jun.  I need to move swiftly and decisively to ge through all this, and yet amid such noise and haste not discard the desiderata

Posting that link, and re-reading it, I realized that while many of you know me as "Happy" or "Happy Pete,"  it's less certain how many of you knew the origins of my traditional benediction of parting:  "Be happy!"  By the way, the copyright date on the web page is incorrect--the poem was actually written by Max Ehrmann in 1927.
