January 20, 2009
I have returned from my first trip of 2009. With the computer left at home and access to very little news, it was a true vacation of the mind. It is my truest fault that I think too much and do too little. This weekend was a small sliver of balance.
The restorative powers of a good friend, a GPS equipped Ford Escape and a plan are amazing. The post-snowboarding coffee with Mint Chocolate Baileys certainly didn’t hurt either.
Capping off my weekend was finally meeting baby Alex. 8 days into it, she seems to be getting the hang of this thing called life probably better than I am. Nearly 30 years my junior and she is already teaching me so much. I can only hope to leave a fraction of the imprint on her that she has left on me.
Next up: San Francisco
