End of the whirlwind

[ #4028 ]

Tonight's the last presentation in a busy few weeks. Since March 19th, I've done NYC, Annapolis MD, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and NYC (again. Tonight). It's only 5 dates, but it seems like a lot more. There's the travel in there, I suppose, which stretches it out some. (It's no wonder I've gotten nothing done to speak of. Time to change that in a big way, I think)

  • Until you've actually done it there's no way to really have a sense of how time-consuming and tiring a speaking tour is. You have to forage for food three times a day (no handy refrigerator or favorite restaurant), scout and then wait for transport every time you go anywhere (no handy car or familiar bus route), crawl down a 28Kbps telephone connection (no handy cable or DSL, and careful with that hotel phone bill, Eugene!), etc., etc.

    Everything takes longer and requires conscious thought and evaluation.
    • It's definitely a lot more work than I expected from previous one-off presentations. I'd planned, for instance, to work on a bunch of things last Wednesday--had a free day between the DC talk and the flight home. Instead I spent the day at the National Galleries and relaxing with a friend.

      Time well spent, but it didn't advance the state of Parrot any. :)
