6/16: a pleasant hour
This afternoon I met a former student at a coffee shop. He graduated 5 years ago (or more?) and was passing through town. It was good to catch up and hear what he's up to (and it was some impressive stuff). But it was also just sheerly great to converse with him; sometimes conversations go smoothly and sweetly, with the dynamics and topics and atmosphere etc. falling into easy line, and this was one of those times.
