My Hampton Inn is in Kankakee, Illinois. Our regional conference of the National Association of Teachers of Singing is in Bourbonnais.
I’m in CHICAGOLAND, as the locals call it, which is sort of like being in Warrenton and being greeted with “Welcome to Saint Louis!”.
The drive yesterday, under blue skies and on mostly easy and empty freeways, was peaceful.
Our steering committee meeting last evening was filled with laughter and happy people doing the kind of institutional service we love. I do so enjoy being around altruistic people!
