Islands of Relief

How do you celebrate a long-awaited goal or unexpected victory?  (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, p.154).

When I consider this question, what come to mind are my days in graduate school at FSU in Tallahassee, FL.  Once after arriving in Tallahassee for the beginning of a term, I walked down to Winn Dixie supermarket and bought a half gallon of Neapolitan ice cream.  I sat in a wooded area overlooking some apartments and ate the entire thing. When the term was over and I had taken the last test and turned in the last term paper, I visited the Krispy Kreme store near campus and got one dozen fresh out of the fryer glazed doughnuts.  I walked back to the campus and sat on the porch of the auditorium where I had watched the movie Fountainhead (by Ayn Rand) during the term, and ate the entire box of doughnuts.  Thus, I punctuated the exertions of the term with sugar highs.
