I'm in mid-travel, and it feels like deja-vu. I flew east on Friday for a few days of RnR which I have enjoyed immensely. But I've got lots happening at work this week that I need to get back to.
My flight out last night was delayed due to a mechanical problem past the point where I could make my connection. So, I spent another night here and am trying again this morning. We'll see how today's adventures in the air go.
As I say - lots going on at work that I need to get back to. So, although I'm thrilled to have an extra night here I had mentally prepared myself to leave yesterday which is no easy feat. How you approach these things in your head is as important (or more important) than the actual logistics involved. The problem is that often times we perceive that we can control the logistics more than we can control what's going on internally. I think both are equally iffy sometimes. Still, I was ready yesterday so I've tried to get get myself re-ready today.
Regardless of the travel logistics, I've had a wonderful few days. In my unique Yin/Yang sense of balance these trips fill a gaping hole that's more mental and spiritual than physical. But keeping that Holy Trinity of self aligned from time to time is key, and I feel fortunate to be able to do that.
I wish there was more I wanted to say today, especially given that I haven't posted here in over a week and lots has transpired over that time. But in both my personal life and my career-life there is need for a sense of carefully considered privacy at the moment.
Over the past few days the headlines have been full of commentary on the Zimmerman verdict. Now that there's no high-profile case for TV to fixate on - whether it be Casey Anthony, Jody Arias, and now this - they'll look over their shoulders at what happened and analyze it twenty ways to Sunday for weeks. And I, for one, couldn't possibly care less about the name, gender, or other specifics of the royal baby about to be born in the UK. I have no idea how we've become so crazed about these kinds of things as a culture, but I for one am so tired of it I can't even listen anymore. Crazy.
My own focus is on decisions with a more immediate personal element. Like this one (here). Perhaps not as sensational, but the mere visibility to these kinds of things has practical everyday implications for many of us.
Onwards, and hopefully, upwards. :-)
