Little Things

Reflecting on the past week, which had some difficult moments, I'm instead inclined to feel hopeful. I woke up very early today and took care of various tasks around here that have been begging for my attention.

Laundry, dishwashing, etc. Little things.

It's the little things that fill our days, whether at work or home.

My older kids and their families are vacationing at Cayo Costa off the coast of southern Florida. I love that place. From the photos they are sending me they seem to be catching some pretty impressive fish!

Like everyone else, my heart is broken over the horrific breaking apart of families at our southern border. This is not the action of the country I love. This is the action of a vicious, heartless dictator.

Among the little things many of us do is follow the news. It is very hard these days to follow this news.

I'll watch other things on my TV this weekend. Casablanca, for one. I need to get some perspective.

I'm basically being destroyed at work by bosses who don't fundamentally understand what I do or how I do it. I lead teams. We do great work. I delegate authority. We get it right. We win awards. I make the tough decisions.

They want to relegate me to a lesser role. At this point in my career that feels terrible. Like career death.

Happy Father's Day!

Lovely breakfast with Peter, Claire and Aidan at the Atlas Cafe.
