It’s Thursday night and I’m sitting here in front of the computer, trying to think of what to write. I got home this afternoon from a work trip and while I did get a bit of a nap, it’s been pretty much non-stop since I got home. I had to catch up on work email and finalize a presentation for business leadership tomorrow morning; we’re nearly at the finish line for a major project which has been causing me a lot of stress. And the work travel was to formally launch another major project–one which is an incredible career opportunity and which is also terrifying because the success of the company is dependent upon the team getting this (mostly) right.

But one of the major highlights of my trip was being able to spend a few hours with one of my oldest and dearest friends. We hadn’t seen each other for ten years and we’ve been friends for nearly 30. He’s one of those friends you can just pick right up where you left off. It’s funny, neither of us thought we’d be where we are today; back when we were teenagers, we had completely different plans for our lives. One of the things my friend said near the end of our time together has really been resonating for me: the older he gets, the more he cherishes his friends.

Anyhow. It is late–nearly midnight–and I am tired, I still haven’t unpacked, and I have to go to work early tomorrow. Have a great weekend.

    As group of us friends from grad school ages into AARP territory (although the heartless fools keep moving the goalposts closer to where I am even as I hurtle through life) one in particular keeps saying “All true wealth is biological” and for a while he meant family, and then children, and now he just means us.
