Today, I lectured about introductions and conclusions. And there is a lot to be said about first impressions and introductions and all. But, I’m not going to be so figurative. Instead, I am going to take a more literal approach. My day began and ended with my brown flats. Although they are just basic brown flats from WalMart, I think of them as driving shoes. Not real driving shoes, but a nice alternative to trying to drive an hour both ways in heels.
