Friend passed this along.

We do live with some pretty amazing things.

A time-filler

I’ve been here in Seattle for a few days, participating in the MVP Global Summit.  It just ended and I have about an hour break before a week full of internal Microsoft meetings commence.  I am jet-lagged and tired.  Meeting up with MVPs = fun.  Meeting with internal Microsoft teams… well, not quite as fun (but there are exceptions).

Listening to a little music while traveling helps keep me sane.  Back in the hotel room I’m streaming Death Cab for Cutie’s album “Narrow Stairs” while drinking hot tea.  Old age, here I come.

(My favorite song on that album is “Your New Twin Sized Bed” – so delightfully melancholy)

I start feeling restless when I go on long trips.  I feel like life is passing me by.

Minor pet peeve – when people say, “You’re so lucky you are going on a trip for work!” There is a vast difference between a work trip and a vacation.

Okay, time to close my eyes for a few minutes and listen to Death Cab.

dry skin cracks, itches
slather lotion, scratch, no help
silent agony
