  • I love what I do, and on most days, I do find myself eager to go in and create what is going to happen this day, and to meet and adapt to the unexpected challenges that the day will bring. It's part of what gives my job its 'juice", part of why it demands my very best.

    This week was no exception. There were some wonderful moments of breakthrough in a particularly difficult and sensitive process. There were some huge challenges that needed to be overcome in the moment. Some moments that I could not believe the lack of emotional intelligence in others, but had to appeal to the very same quality in myself and others to keep the process from flying off the rails. There's so much at stake in getting it right.

    A very full week, each day its own unique event.

    But, God, I am so, so happy that Friday is here! A couple of important meetings early, a commitment to myself to take a "closer walk" at lunchtime, to wherever my feet might decide to take me - they know where they want to go. I'll just follow, and take note(s).

    Let Friday begin!
