Added to my slightly ambitious plans for today were ad hoc meetings that stretched longer than their schedule. It isn't unusual, but made it busier than I had imagined. All I wanted in the end was quiet. Not even photography. Luckily for me the rain outside became an excuse. No matter how much drizzle the day receives, it has been ending in better weather. I had almost taken it for granted, but it wasn't so today. The outdoors felt good after being chained behind walls for those long hours.
