I find myself journaling during the middle of the work day for the first time in ages. It was, delightfully, a "normal" morning. Into the office by 9, to not receive the scheduled call by a person who rarely calls (not my boss).
However, i received retirement notice from one staff member (which means a discussion acknowledging his unhappiness) and news from a friend that her daughter has been in critical condition this weekend and will be loosing a kidney. I find the opening due to my colleague's departure for greener pastures will report to New Director, which makes sense, and yet fills me with a feeling of misery as i imagine the new person will be cut from the cloth that appeals to New Director.
I will need to make progress tonight on some botanical future. Maybe experiment with a narrative and photos using the Apple iBook tool. More research on the lost lupines of the Bay Area.
We've had a production issue which was not due to our system but a mailserver getting jammed up. Rumor has it someone sent a huge powerpoint out to a huge distribution list.
