March 24, 2007
Getting ready for a series of meetings in another city, another state: the tyranny of nylons, the understated make-up, the clothes that are supposed to say “professional” and “responsible adult”, the pretty, yet uncomfortable shoes. As I put on my serious jewelry for the serious day ahead, I imagine all the people I’m going to meet with that day, in various hotels across the city, all getting ready too, in the same way, preparing for the same situation, all at once, without any knowledge of the others. We’ll separately speed toward the same place, then separate and scatter again, relieved.
