“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.”
Julie planned a birthday trip for us from Manhattan to Miami, then rent a convertible and drive to Key West. The plane was delayed so the drive in the convertible, although still fun, was made a bit less by the fact that we drove from 10:30pm to 2am, so not much to be seen on the drive in. Still, what a nice birthday surprise!!!
Some time off, we headed south to Brittany in lower France to a little cottage estate owned by the Campling family. Lot’s of Wine, Games, and golf this weekend. Tomorrow I am going to help Chaz with cladding the side of the barn. It’s not just beautiful here, it’s postcard kind of beautiful.
I’ve been to San Francisco several times, I love this city and it always amazes me with the size of the skyline and the view of the ocean. The hills, the people, the transportation, everything about San Francisco is something to love about it.
A short trip to visit Kelly and Pat in Virginia, near Washington D.C. We were treated to a tour of the mall and as many monuments as we could squeeze in. There’s a lot to take in here and you could spend a week at the Smithsonian and still not see it all.
First day of the year, first hangover of the year. Julie and I had a great time last night staying at the W hotel, roaming the streets of NYC and catching all the festivities New York City has to offer on New Year’s Eve.
My friends Sona and Phil who used to live in New York until recently, just got married yesterday in Windsor, England (nearby anyway) and it was a beautiful reception. After the wedding was the reception back at the hotel and it went on till well after 3am.
Went out tonight and enjoyed a bit of tech talk with some people who know their stuff over some wine and light dinner. A conversation about the evolution of the industry that felt more like a brain storming session rather than the usual polite conversation. It’s nice to get to do that with people who know all the ubber web geek terms that I do know and not look back at you with a “what the hell are you talking about?” kind of look.
