Sustain-ability: Neutral Territory
Could not have picked a better week to leave the US in favor of Switzerland. I haven't seen any TV or news since leaving home and am better for it. And during the most emotional, the most fraught day in recent US history, I will be flying (staying coherent is easy when the drinks are free).

Everything here is high end IKEA, but it was all Old Europe in the mountains -- snow and horse carriage rides and cheese. My room barely had Internet and, in addition to a brisk walk in -18F temperatures (windchill -22) I spent a silent afternoon actually reading a novel in the hotel library. Also, there was work (which is completely fine by me -- this is what gets me through difficult days in the office) and spa.
So in the way that working magic makes things come together naturally, this week has given me a great clarity of mind and heart, which I will certainly need as I come back to:
- A country positively heaving with stress, pain, discord, and anger
- A whole shitload of work (the kind that happens in a cube, not on a mountain)
- And an ambitious plan to start the next phase of my magical journey
