Folks, I’ll be honest. I’ve spent the past eight hours in Zoom training about Title IX in order to become a hearing panel member at my university. My brain is full and I have absolutely no idea what I’m supposed to write about in the Hoddle.
So I went to a website with a (long) list of “conversation starter” questions and picked one out at random. Here it is:
“What is your favorite place to be in the world?”
Rather open-ended question, right? But I know my answer. It’s at Cinnamon Bay beach on St. John in the US Virgin Islands. I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to St. John twice — once alone with my spouse and once, last year, with my family. That beach is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. I’m not a particularly well traveled guy, but I can’t imagine there are many places that top it in terms of sheer beauty and tranquility.
So that’s my question for today. Where’s your happy place?
