I’m travelling to Brisbane tomorrow. In ways it’s a bit of a horror trip. I walk out the door at 6am and don’t walk back in until more than a dozen hours later. In the meantime I’ll be 4 hours on a plane, there and back. In other ways I’m looking forward to it.
I spent about 10 months in Brisbane in 2005, and haven’t been back since. I’m curious to see how much it has changed and what it’s like now. I keep hearing good things about Brissy and though a hurried day in the city won’t allow me to see much hopefully I can get some sense of the present day vibe.
It means that I’m very busy right now preparing for the trip while attending to the multitude of projects being sent my way, all with more priority than I would like. As it stands, touch wood, I’m on top of everything, but that can change quickly. There’s also the concern that while I’m doing my thing ultimately it’s dependent on others doing theirs. Given nothing is live, let alone tested, I don’t have a great deal of confidence in that.
Other things are happening too, but I’ll have to leave that conversation for another time.
