I got home yesterday evening after nine days away, which I spent visiting schools in the Dallas area and presenting at the Dublin Literacy Conference in Dublin, Ohio.

So, today has sort of been a day off. Or at least a day of taking care of the highest-priority to-dos that stacked up while I was traveling.

I started with this one:

Go vote, y’all. Vote early, if you can. Vote in the runoff, if there is one. And, come the fall, vote with as many of your family, friends, and neighbors and you can round up. It matters.
