If a tree falls in the woods?

So a week ago the DC region was digging out from a blizzard.  We are still melting out, schools in my county start back this morning.  As I have mentioned, I HATE WINTER.  Last Tuesday I went from the top image, to the airport, to the image at the bottom.  Sunshine, palm trees and 72 degrees.  Ten minutes later I was lounging in the sun by the pool with friends.  Ah!  I understand why 10,000,000 people live between LA and San Diego.

But the trip was all work.  I sat by the pool and talked about work, followed by a two hour meeting in the bar talking about work over a Margarita or three.  The next day I was in a conference room, overlooking the pool all day for an Academy board meeting, followed another essential meeting in the bar.  Thursday morning was a breakfast meeting at 7:00 AM, followed by a full day of travel to get back to DC for a Friday board meeting.

It was all work, work in California,  If a tree falls in the woods and there is no one around to hear it, does it make a sound?  If work occurs in paradise, is it still work?


  1. "If work occurs in paradise, is it still work?" - yes, but the atmosphere is better in paradise!

  2. Pools, matgaritas, warmth........lives a bitch

  3. If work occurs in paradise it's just simply working in paradise. No place better to work. Although it is freakin 48 degrees here this morning...ouch!
