We’re back from summer vacation. Being together, with lots of time in the water, did us nearly all the good we were hoping for. Now we’re timezone-adjusted, our luggage has arrived, and we’re looking for swings of things to get back in. Kids are getting health inspections, the big guy will attend a day camp next week, and I’m back at my desk systematizing the job of finding my next job.

This afternoon, between lunch and dinner appointments, my desk has been outside a Blue Bottle in TriBeCa. It’s been a long time since I was in the city without any kids in tow. While on vacation I was able to get together with friends I hadn’t seen in five years, and it threw into focus how little of that I’ve had room for and for how long. Last night I was able to join my sister and my parents for dinner. I can’t even think of the last time this happened; well over five years ago, that’s for sure.

I’ve been needing much more friend-time and family-time in my life. For the moment, at least, there’s room.
