“Where are you girl?” That was the beginning of one of my emails once I got back online this morning after nearly a week blog-quiet. Mahalo for thinking of me!
I’ve been traveling and working, traveling and conferencing (with Dean! ” more on that soon), and now I’m traveling and visiting my two kids during their Spring Break. One guess as to where we’ve rendezvoused:
Yes, I’m playing! 420 quarters helps pay for a few days internet access when hotels still don’t get how annoying it is that they still charge for it. Still, I’ve learned to enjoy being in Las Vegas, for taking it in small doses gives me this “other world” snapshot which seems to stimulate a lot of different thinking tracks. Traveling anywhere does that for me, and Las Vegas offers up this particular challenge in looking deeper, to see more of what most who visit here don’t see; there is sense of place wherever you go.
I used to come here about twice a year in my Hualalai days pre-SLC and my self-employment, for there is a lot of business conducted in the city which never sleeps. Las Vegas was often the place that many of the conferences I needed to attend were scheduled when on their “west coast rotation.” However this trip is the first time I’ve seen this city through the eyes of someone here for college (my daughter) and it’s already different though I just arrived last night.
I’m still doing Spring Break ” who’d have thought? Whoever said, “you’re only young once” was wrong ” or maybe they thought our youth never ends. That I agree with.
