Return. Me: 2/8, Dallas: 2-7

There were no new responses in my mailbox when I got home, over a week ago, and none since. I’m still at 2/8; same as when I left for France.

All last week my coworkers (those who’d counted the days until my departure for France) said my face showed a peaceful distance, despite the turmoil I felt inside, returning to perform the work of three people with just one body and mind.

Pressured once again with deadlines that feel like threats (by those who weren’t counting down the time to my departure) I’m pleased that at least some people see the peace I acquired on the trip, although I’m once again beginning to lose sleep, not from familiar jet lag but from the familiar pressure.

At 2/7 I wonder what my Dallas Cowboys feel. Talk about pressure.

This is a first, as far as my experience with agent responses – nearly four months and still 6 SASEs outstanding? Part of me wants to jump ahead and re-evaluate; yet, for now I’ll remain patient and continue to feel that peace I acquired in France, for however long it lasts.

Until next time, beloved France!
