beavers have it easy

It's been a busier-than-usual week .. I'm attending a five-day class from 8:30 until 2 each day, and learning about 18 new people whom I'll not see again (probably) after it's over. Such is the nature of life: many fleeting encounters, and a very few precious deep relationships.

The Big Meeting is tonight, and I'll breathe a sigh of relief when it's all over. Lots of planning and wordsmithing was involved, and now it's down to executing the plan. Last night, I swung by the printer and picked up the multi-thousands of pages of handouts, some in bright yellow, bright green, bright purple, bright blue .. and (shock!) even white.

Lots of people are involved, so it's not like I'm doing this in a vacuum, although it's amazing that I'm the only one who knows The Big Picture, and that concerns me. A year from now, my 2-year Term In Office will be complete, and I'd like to think that those who follow will be able to pick up where I left off. Like LBJ before me (!), I've already made it clear that I will not serve a second term. Did I document things so the transition will happen with nary a ripple? Let's hope so.

*sniff sniff* It was such a nice neighborhood. Too bad it's about to go to hell in a handbasket. :)
