Strange day at work for a couple of reasons. First, today was my first, last and solitary workday this week. because Monday was a holiday and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday were “down with a cold” days. Work always looks a little different after an extended time off. And second, I heard a lot of stories about people I know who all within this week have experienced serious cardiac problems; a heart attack, an open-heart surgery, three angiograms and two angioplastys. Being 60, but feeling fine, (sniffles excepted), this news left me with an unsettled mix of feelings; compassion and anxiety.
