|SOMETHING SURPRISING||I test as a strong introvert. It’s not that I can’t enjoy a crowd or that I avoid the podium — all of that comes with the job — but it’s not what energizes me. I always prefer a long run on one of the many trails in our beautiful area. That’s where I gain my mental strength.|
|WORRIES ABOUT||The growing segmentation in our society and the increasing levels of intolerance between groups|
|READING||Desert Oracle, by Ken Layne; Sweet Thursday by John Steinbeck (again)|
