It's grey outside today. I'm looking out at the water and like the overcast feel of the day. I've come to like cloudy days. Maybe I've lived too long in hot weather and appreciate any respite from the sun. But there's something comforting about having it be cloudy outside. It's close to having a rainy day when I can go into a cave like existence.
I would like to move back to the cave today. The meeting has been non productive but painless so far. I didn't expect too much to be actually accomplished. Most of these meetings allow an exchange of ideas but often we find that it's a pie in the sky kind of thing. We don't have the information really needed to do what we want to do.
I used to let things like that frustrate me. I would generally make a statement that we don't even know the basics so how can we move to the multi-level complicated modeling of the environment. Now I'm resigned to not having the answers. I don't know if we will have the answers we loftily look for. Maybe just having a mental exercise is important. I'm not going to grandstand today. I'll just blend in and listen and hope to hear something that will stimulate me.
