The northeast is closed for the day (or two)

I’m sure some places look much worse than this

Okay, the snow has arrived. After all the fanfare yesterday, it looks like this is going to turn into something. I was supposed to have meetings today with folks from the northeastern corridor, who were flying into town, but obviously that’s not happening. Nobody from the northeast is going anywhere. And it’s surprising just how much weather in one part of the world can affect everywhere else.

Especially when you can’t get to work. Or fly. Or drive. Or take a train.

So, I guess it’s an extended snow day for many of us. I have a lot of business dealings with a lot of folks from the northeast. May everyone stay safe.

Days like this are a welcome change for me (provided I stay safe and sound, as well). It’s Mother Nature’s way of doing a reality check for us and forcing us to   s l o w   d o w n.   Do we really need to be racing around all over the place? That gets old.

It will be good to take a break from the usual routine today. I have some things for work that I want to take care of, and I need some concentrated quiet time to do them. Without everybody knocking on my door (figuratively speaking), it will be easier. I’m going to just work from home and buckle down. Nice. Productive. Satisfying.

And no drama.l

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.
