Suspended

I write this suspended in the air.   38,000 feet, somewhere over the Atlantic returning from a long, long journey overseas. Feels like forever. Actually it was two trips, with a return to the U.S. in between. Atlanta-Tel Aviv-Atlanta…four days at home….Atlanta-Tel Aviv-London-Atlanta. That was much of April and I have yet to be home in May. Ten separate flights…

Batteries

I got back earlier this week after spending 10 days in Israel, where my company is based. These 10 days were great for us as a company, although they were incredibly full. I spent 10-12 hours every day “locked” in conference rooms.  Outside of hummus, falafel and Israeli salads being the lunch option every day, I could’ve been in a…
