This week has been warm in Minnesota. 60F is unusual for this time of year and we are sure to see some ugly weather in the next month. Those are facts, not value judgements. The weather has coincided with the first major spring classic cycling race: Paris-Nice. One of the nice things about working in an office is that I can stream the coverage. I don’t watch much of it, but listening is fine too.
Consider yourself warned. This next paragraph is some stream of consciousness stuff. Blame “The Dead Authors Podcast, Appendix G”.
Someone on twitter was hashing on spring break and how they never went on trips when they were in college during this interlude. They asked what people did on their breaks. I had, or tried to have, a gathering that was usually a BBQ. It didn’t work well because of the offset times of breaks across the lives of my friends. I found a picture from ’95 of said BBQ. Six people in the picture, I only know where one is now. Twenty years ago I saw you yesterday. This week was kiddo’s first spring break from school. One day you find ten years have got behind you. Went to a college friend’s birthday party last weekend. There was somehow more and less evidence than I suspected of us moving forward in time by words, much more and much less evidence by faces. Memory is a strange thing and I’m not sure where I have been in time this week, much like Billy Pilgrim.
