One of the many great things Jon Reese added to the CCJ summer camp this year was a "love box" where campers leave notes of praise for little and big things they notice about fellow campers, counselors and faculty. It's been edifying to see the whole group rally around each other.
I would like to publicly express a little love for Saint Leila Regan-Porter. She had to basically be a single mother while I spent three weeks in Cambodia (to say nothing of prep time and end-of-semester duties), a more-or-less single mother during the next four days of camp prep, jet lag and convalescence, and then a camp widow for 10 days. To say I owe her would be an extreme understatement. I love you, Leila, and I'm lucky to have you. Rosemary June, you'll get your daddy back soon.
