Friday was going to be a busy day.  I had to get into work quick, make short work of a long day of technically difficult things, then jet home to work out, and pack for our vacation.

I drove to work in a heated up frenzy of anticipatory impatience, not helped by the torrential rain coming down from Hurricane Joaquin.

Once I parked though, the sound of the traffic and the falling rain just fell away from me.

I got out of the car, looked across the parking lot to the highway and just...


And for a few minutes, my mind was empty.

It felt good.

It wasn't too much later my brain was full again, and I rushed around like a maniac.  But that doesn't mean that the pause wasn't worthwhile.  It's always good to have.
