Life list, visiting Texas: check.

Signs of spring outside Maddy's apt in London.
It feels like I just got back into the swing of things and now we're off to Austin tomorrow for SXSW. I feel simultaneously psyched on a professional level (content strategy sessions, I am THERE.) and pumped on a social level (ummm hello, parties every night!). Once again, I'm packing my running gear and it occurs to me that maybe I should have some kind of "running in random places" blog, except that the idea of blogging about and photographing the traveling running makes me even more tired than the running itself. Idea = canceled.

I'm not Catholic or anything, but I usually try to give something up for Lent (because I like a good challenge). This year, instead of giving something up, I'm going to do something extra! I will be eating a piece of fruit every day, which, let's be honest, is probably something that should just happen anyway. Today I had a banana while driving back from a client presentation in New Jersey. Our presentation went well and when my zipcar and I got to the Verazzano bridge, I did a little dance in my seat because, damn. Important client presentation. Driving home to our sweet apartment in Brooklyn. Off to schmooze with smart, inspiring people in Austin for the next 6 days.

Feeling very, very grateful lately.

So I'll see you all when I see you! Maybe some blogging from Austin, maybe not. In the meantime, you can read this smart post that Chris wrote for the Arc blog. See? He's a writer too!

If you happen to be at SXSW, we (Arc90/Readability) are probably going to organize some drinks for Sunday night after the Arc90/Behavior Design talk... watch Twitter for more info. So, come hang out and introduce yourself! We will not be weird about it.
