While I continue to struggle with a return to "civilization", I thought I'd really challenge myself with a flash to the past. From a country house in the woods of Pennsylvania, I flew out of BWI to work a 5-day technology event in San Antonio. The resort was gorgeous, the food fab, and it was good to see familiar faces from my event production days while meeting a few new compadres. That said, the airport experience (it's been 3.5 years since I've flown), the 14-hour days, and the constant intrusion of technology (phone and tablet always in hand), just about did me in! Sometimes technology does NOT make life easier!
From here, some semblance of myself arrived late one night at the door of a dear friend in Easton, Maryland (yes, the old stomping ground). With business to take care of, stuff to check, and many friends to see over just 5 days, it was a hurried visit. Nevertheless, I still fit in a few bike rides to revisit my favorite routes on the Shore. It was fun, and great to be greeted with open arms by many, many people.
As winter returns, I'm journeying south as I must be warm! Three stops to make before this year's "seasonal job" puts me in a whole new universe. Stay tuned!
