It's been a busy few weeks. I've been swamped at work and I often haven't had the chance to step back and appreciate the whole picture. There have been bumps, as there usually are, but I've noticed that with every bump, it seems to elevate me a little - like that moment of being airborne before hitting the earth again, and skidding along the road yet unscathed. I was told this week that with most of the senior staff away on March break, I was at the helm of more than my usual share. It didn't frighten me. It made me feel so comfortable and peaceful. It made me feel like I'm finally at the helm of my ship and I know the course.
