fade to mono then supersaturate
The fun and games of the last few days has given way to the working week with its new tasks.
I haven't quite moved back into suit and tie at the office yet, but next week the shiny shoe client facing stuff starts again.
I suspected that the meetings booked right at the end of 2010 would all get shuffled around and sure enough they have. I can understand that people returning are spending the first few hours pruning their in-boxes and calendars, even if they did have a peek during the holiday season.
By today, the traffic on the roads and the traffic of phone and email messages is getting back to normal. Everyone has reset themselves and after Tuesday's slight struggle, by Thursday they are all back onto normal schedules.
I'm starting to wake up a few minutes before the alarm again, which lets me get up and turn it off before its annoying beeping starts.
And this year there is already a sense of hectic pace where even an ostensibly quiet week is one where its important to get certain things cleared away. I know that by next week I'm starting to look outward two or more weeks to find clear days.
