A Snowy Winter Day’s Thoughts
Definitely a winter wonderland effect going on out there today – or at least it will be once the snow stops falling. It’s a wet, heavy snow that sticks to everything, so we’ll end up with everything covered in the stuff. Very pretty. And of course the snow is very sound dampening, so everything is kind of hushed. One of my favorite views is looking into downtown Boston when I leave work on a night like tonight is likely to be.
Of course getting to and from the office – or at least to/from the subway stop – can kill the enjoyment of it all.
On Monday I saw a release saying the Dartmouth volleyball coach was leaving after something like 17 years. I coached in the Ivy League, and have been feeling the urge to go back into coaching again after my now 4 year hiatus, so something like that gets me thinking “Should I put in for the job?”
The answer is “No”, of course, even though I certainly could do the job and always loved the Ivy League competition. For any number of reasons I’m in no position to do something like that right now. Even if I were, would I want to coach in Hanover, NH? That’s kind of isolated, and as much as I might like a snowscape from time to time, I’m not so sure I want to head further north than I’m already at.
