My first-ever campus visit was at a school in Wisconsin.  At the time, I was excited at the prospect of moving there, and devastated when I didn’t get the job.  In retrospect, this worked out nicely. They had a fantastically brutal winter (Spouse doesn’t “do” cold) and now the labor situation.

Eventually, something will give, and I’ll be happy with the outcome.  Let’s just hope I have the wisdom and the perspective to recognize a gift when I see it.
