It has been a while since I gave my mind the luxury of luxuriating in the absoluteness of nothing. My body and my mind were screaming for a break, begging me for a few days off from 20 hour days.
About 28 hours into the quietness, answers to questions I forgot to ask started to come to me. I realized why I love the open ocean — not because it is pretty or soothing, which it is — but it reflects the size and scope of knowledge and the opportunities it brings. I realized my love affair with blue skies is because they signify the limitless possibilities. Coastal California combines those two magical qualities and perhaps that is why ten years later, I am still here, though my heart is in New York.
Today, as I sit and watch the waves crash on the shore, there are more questions on my mind than there were yesterday. Some of those are about technology headlines, others are just musings of a more metaphysical kind. Either way, I am glad that for a day or so, the world slowed down!
