(Reno, NV) Today is the last day of my current contract (I’m a computer consultant by trade). In honor of this day, I quote the following story about George Santayana
(from The Writer’s Almanac
):

One day while he was teaching he looked out the window and saw a forsythia beginning to blossom. He stopped his lecture, picked up his gloves, hat, and walking stick, and said, "Gentlemen, I shall not be able to finish that sentence. I have just discovered that I have an appointment with April."
