Wow, time is flying by of late with wings like...well, take your pick of something with wings that flies really fast. Usually I have a pretty fair sense of time. That is, I can guess with a decent amount of accuracy how much of it has passed since the last time I checked the clock. But the last few weeks have been weird for me. I'll be in step class thinking it's only half-way through when suddenly it'll be over. I'll be on conference calls thinking only a half an hour has passed and the next thing I realize, it's actually well over an hour that's gone by. Yesterday was something else again: call after discussion after e-mail, followed by more of the same at a frantic pace. Of couse I consider it a good thing when I find myself at the end of a day of work feeling as though I just got started, but it's disconcerting to feel so out of step with my usual connection to the flow of time.

I have a couple of things that have been occupying my mind of late, one of which I'm trying to figure out if I can/should talk about. On one side is the fact that the situation itself is in the public domain, it's been talked about in the press and the court documents are public record. On the other side are things like attorney-client privilege and knowledge of things that aren't in the public domain, not to mention my usual duty of confidentiality that's owed to my clients. But the situation goes so against my American notions of justice that my mind is begging me to talk about it, get it off my chest. Anyway, sorry to be so vague. When I figure out what to say or whether I can say anything I'll try to be less so.

With that, I think I'll get back to losing track of time. But before I do I thought I'd share a little something that amused my family over the week-end. Take a look at this and let me know whether she's turning clockwise or counter-clockwise. Clearly, she is turning counter-clockwise and my husband & daughter can't see worth a damn. Then again, it explains so much about how differently we perceive the world that I can but laugh. Ha <-- see, I laugh.
