Orlando To Salt Lake City And Some Photos In Between

And just like that, two-weeks are over; my most recent project for work has ended and life slowly returns. I had a week of work in Orlando, one of my least favorite places to go, followed directly by a week of work in Salt Lake City, somehow extremely foreign and mysterious under 8 inches of snow in one day and then 4 in another. I took a few photos during the weeks.

My trip started with a lovely necklace from India I spontaneously bought at the airport. Gold beads strung on thin strands of string, and it makes me so happy every time I wear it.

I had altogether way too much time in front of my computer doing nothing but charts, e-mail, more charts, more e-mail, followed by more charts, more e-mails. 170 hours of work is a lot.

I left Orlando looking a little something like this.

I arrived in Salt Lake City the same day looking a little like this.

We stayed in the most glorious hotel in Salt Lake City and everyone joked that it felt like we were in Downton Abbey, and it did a little. We saw 2 professional basketball teams in our seven days at the hotel.  As I mentioned it snowed, it snowed, and it continued to snow. It seemed to set a spell on life. Working and walking halls that looked out onto white flurries. Days upon days of a faint dreamy veil outside while inside the work continued.

I spent a week fantasizing, dreaming, and admiring a certain pair of insane shoes only to have them bought for me on a particularly bad workday. Purple with gold tipped toes.

There was more than just work; we played air hockey, pool, and went bowling. Dinner with old friends and new friends.

I took a walk up to the Salt Lake Temple my last morning. No, I am not coming back either converted or married.

And now it’s time for relaxation, for some visits, and to get back to life without being attached at the hip to my computer and phone. Already the Pacific air is in my lungs and the misty fog of Salinas valley mornings and hikes up hills are collecting my time.

Love,

Ra
