The idea was to do some writing today, but my sanctuary -the apartment clubhouse- has gone from peaceful and empty to a mass of distractions and irritants. A "health fair" is starting soon, there's a family conducting an air hockey tournament and someone keeps trying to change the channel so I can't watch downhill skiing.

I need some lunch. Earlier I thought of some prose, it was on my way home from work last night. I liked it. It had a nice flow. Now I'm drawing a blank. I'll blame them.

Looks like I need to clear out. Computer wants a restart so downloads can take effect.

sitting downtown

Well I am in training this week at my new company and posting from my first blackberry. I used to think of these as a tether, but I coming to realize they are more of a release from the office.
Two weeks of training then I will be on the road and selling to clients. Steep learning curve in some respects, but being with another paper keeps it more familiar and less trouble.
