Well folks, I did it. After wishing for so long that I could just escape and disappear for awhile, I saw an opportunity and I made it happen.
I got away.
No, I am not on vacation – I continue to work remotely as I do every other day of the week from my office in D.C. But I removed myself from the distractions of home, the craziness of my current situation, my complete inability to sit still and relax. I am on my own, by myself, with 13 magazines, six books, one yoga mat, and my computer. I slept 10 hours last night and hope to repeat that many times before my return to D.C.
And while I was at it, I upgraded the view from my office. Nice, isn’t it?
So my big plans are to enjoy the silence … relax … read … and maybe, if I’m lucky, get a bit of sun. I’ve been here fewer than 24 hours and already it’s evident how much a simple change of environment has helped my body and soul.
Oh, and here is how we do afternoon meetings at the secure, undisclosed location.
