Back to main menu :: [Prev] a little respite [Next]

I'm at a conference for a couple of days, and I know I should be networking my ass off for various reasons, but being "on" for strangers makes me blue after a while. I'm the person who likes parties but prefers to hide behind the potted ficus and observe others' good times.

So I skipped a session and went in search of peace and quiet. A cup of tea, an empty classroom, a Willa Cather story, and nothing but the sound of the HVAC humming above me. For an hour, all was right with the world.

I'll network tomorrow, I promise.

Its been a while! Glad I'm not the only one not-posting, and will be glad once I figure out how to get peacedividend back that you're still here to link to. I'm very, very grateful the site survives in blogrolls etc links. I think that'll help me creep toward "able to get out more, and talk to strangers without pretty rapid blurring into blue".
Gads. I might even write somewhat less cryptically, when there's a linkable reference more grounded and clearly conveying of events but still one step away from that which is almost never spoken of.
Hrm. That didn't help.
But seeing you here does.
