Back Home

Got back from LA yesterday evening.

I had a great visit out there... well, aside from losing the Emmy (I am now 0-4 all time), but it IS an honor just to nominated, yadda yadda yadda. Some amazing meetings followed, with some amazing people, most of which I can't tell you about... yet. But maybe one day.

And it's always nice to be back in Santa Fe, with Parris, the cats, and the minions. And to escape the LA heat as well.

But the amount of crap that has piled up in my absence is daunting. There's just too damn much. Even with three assistants, I am falling further and further behind, and more and more stuff keeps getting dumped on my plate. Somehow just walking back into my office after a trip sends my stress level ratcheting up to ten. Or maybe to a hundred, depending on your scale.


There is no help for it, I suppose. Price of success, and all that. And I know, lots and lots of folks would love to have my problems. No one needs to tell me that.

Even so...

(Today's football games did not much help my mood either. Life is meaningingless and full of pain...)

s..s..s.. SSSTRESSS
Feel the same entering my office after a break.Self-employed,no minions to snarl at,(do kids qualify as minions?),I am Andy Dufresne hearing Shawshank's doors snap shut.I take a deep breath,say,'Suck it up,' & .. begin.Beginning is the hardest bit.Later I take the direwolf for a walk:in the forests, along the shore,up to the standing-stones.And then I am a Stark,escaping into the Wolf Wood. Sometimes I smell the smoke from Winterfell's burning or glimpse Theon & Asha's ships' sails off-shore.I race my direwolf through the woods to warn Castle Black.After our audience with the Lord Commander,we go home & I feed my direwolf "Shaggy Dog's Krunchy Kibble-fortified with calcium & iron.. born".So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for keeping me sane(ish).
