On my way back home. Here's a view from the airplane--Minneapolis below, serene and radiant cloudscape above, and me in the middle.

I have a hoarse throat (too much talking/Covid); a headache (not enough sleep + lots of stress/Covid); and back and body aches (too many books from the book exhibition in my backpack/Covid).

I'm double KN-95 masked (just in case) and there are no tests available at the airport. So I guess time and the Covid tests sitting in the guest bathroom at home will tell.

First of all, I am so happy for you that you had such a great conference! I'm behind on my post reading but just caught up. Looks like it went well and how wonderful to be back in person.

I hope you don't have Covid or anything else - but boy, there is a lot of stuff going around. My kids are like preschoolers now, they seem to have a lot of colds/ viruses over these past two months. Anyway, hope you can rest and feel better!

I hope it's not covid. My sister and her family all came down with it last week. The current strains are super contagious.

Thank you for the good wishes, Nicole and Steph. I'm testing negative so far; fingers crossed. I feel a lot better after some sleep, so that's definitely helping.

I was mostly masked indoors, but there was that one party in someone's room and I look back at those pictures and it really looks like a super-spreader event. I don't think the virus cares if you have your mask off "just for eating and drinking."
