A Few Christmas Reflections
This is my first Christmas that isn't heavily scheduled and timed and synchronized in many years. It's going to be a very low-key few days filled with cooking, unwrapping, board games, movies, dog walks and naps. I've been sick for a week solid now, so I'm looking forward to the opportunity to rest and recharge.
We live in a cult of busy. "How are you?" is just as frequently answered with "busy" as anything else. I like to occupy my mind, no doubt, but I've spent the last year in airports and transitions, bustling from one meeting and engagement to the next. My life has been a constant check list, so it's nice to not have a ton on my plate right now. My only goals for the next few days are to spend time with my family and maybe run a few miles.
So cheers to unscheduleness and the lack of busy. Merry Christmas to all!
