It's August 6, 2006 and I've been back at work a week. If this week is any indication, I might be doing a bit more than 1/4 time. Will Berkovitz and Lelach Rave had a second baby boy - his name is Idan Shalom (era of peace). The bris was Friday morning, so I left a bit late for my Seattle to Vancouver bike ride. In order to catch up with the group, I cheated and got a ride to Mt. Vernon (75 miles of the 180 mile trip).
Now I face the summer-camp-challenge of figuring out how to bring the lessons of my sabbatical home to real life in Seattle. I learned to better face what life brings my way without trying to control it all. I learned how to deal with so many different kinds of people. I learned how take a few more risks. I learned how to make coffee. I hope that I'll be able to bring all of these lessons into my life instead of leaving them in my sabbatical travels.
I look forward to connecting with old and new friends.
Thanks for reading this.
