The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

Life is short, week 16 of 52

Status report: 1 migraine, way too much whiskey. My liver is certainly getting a workout from funner things here.

This week’s Life is Short moments:

1. Finally meeting a teammate after a year. I am the biggest advocate for remote work as I’ve been working from home since 2010, but I do believe in bonding in person. There is a lot you miss in curated Zoom rooms and limited time, that you pick up in person.

2. Being in a room with people that used to intimidate me — and finding more things in common that I thought we would. I never hated anyone — but also, it’s harder to demonize someone when you’ve been with them up close. I love that I got the opportunity to absorb my colleagues’ wisdom and energy.

3. Hitting a gorgeous national park. Friends took me to the most amazing national park, even with a dose of predeparture tension. I’m incredibly lucky to have experienced it with people I adore.
