It is a time of celebration in St Louis: Cinco de Mayo, a crossover pseudo-cultural recognition of a Mexican victory in 1862.
This particular one is gorgeous: 80 F and sunny, even at 7 pm.
You might ask if I am celebrating. Dinner? Drinks? Perhaps a long run?
I am consumed by The Talk and The (career) Exploration. I have been to Kinko's for 4 straight nights to photocopy documents and/or proofread presentation slides. I haven't been to the gym in about 3 weeks. Soon, I will return to work to make up time this evening. I am constantly on the phone at lunch, and tomorrow AM, I am taking the morning off to consult with cross-border accountants.
It is pretty busy. I have virtually withdrawn from social circles in St Louis (sorry about that). I am usually sleeping well and not really keyed up, but things are intense, and I haven't even made any decisions on The Exploration.
My main solace are some guilty-pleasure TV and, wonderfully, a strong routine on the piano.
I hope all is well you, dear readers. Have a margarita for me!
