friends and family reunion road trip: day eleven: mostly waiting to see a vet, with some family time

Yesterday Cookie woke up with what appeared to be an eye infection. I was concerned that it might be conjunctivitis, which is highly contagious. We had a full day of daycare booked in Ashland, with someone I found on Rover, but obviously we couldn't do that without knowing what was going on.

I took the advice of several of those calls, and we went to the Southern Oregon Veteri...

There are some grand and impressive bus stations in Mexico, but this isn’t one of them....

The New Corporate Currency: Travel and Workplace Flexibility | By Daniel Johnson

The path toward leadership is the road less traveled. Not because there aren’t countless individuals eager and well-equipped to walk it, but because it’s a path that cannot be walked alone. Sure, great ideas help. It’s less about the idea and more about the people who bring it to life. In this respect, a crucial part of leadership is not only generating great ideas but bringing great people to the table, and more importantly, inspiring them to stay.
