This weekend I finally got my stuff together. I read myself to sleep Friday night around 900p to some Neutra houses and plans. Woke up early Saturday morning to get to Palm Springs by 1030a. I haven't been slacking or laying around Escalante-Lentz Residence with a cold. I think this is a new beginning. But can life get better? With sleep and a deep tissue massage, yes.
Tim Justice, joined the Escalante Architects team as a senior principal and we are looking forward to a mutually beneficial relationship for years to come.
For those of you who were not at the office today, we started the day with a kick-off meeting in which we highlighted all the "in-housekeeping" issues we need to address as well as the projects coming our way and the overall mission of our architectural practice. Then, as usual we went out get something to eat, rolled-up our sleeves and got to work. We have some draconian deadlines to meet in the near future. What else is new?
Ju-ju, I do not know if you read the blog, but, FYI I ran the race this morning. The excitement of racing took away my common sense, so I went out with the front pack for the first mile... Not a good idea. Afterwards I slowed down what it amounted to a death march. I kept using all the tricks I have learned throughout the years, but none of them worked, like "enjoy the scenery", "look at the sunrise", "isn't the desert beautiful", "you are not falling apart" "that is someone else's huffing and puffing". The last mile was particularly hard... I wonder why? does the 16% slope has anything to do with it? who cares. At the end, I was delirious, suffered a complete heart failure, an asthma attack and all sorts of opportunistic ailments. I will never do it again... Nevertheless, I ran the way back and finally, when I was feeling good at mile 7, I believe I passed out when I saw Lourdes and Sofia running towards me at the bottom of the Tramway.
It was a suffer-fest, you were smart to bail.
