Understanding Warp Speed

A friend of mine is outlining a total meltdown in her blog. Adding insult to injury after a holiday season of stress, her academic job resumes at what she calls warp speed. I often ask myself how it is that I chose a profession in which nothing ever stops moving.

Multi-tasking is my middle name. Not that I'm very good at it. I simply have no choice.

Imagine this. I am so caught up in my job that it is a stress for me to take a break this evening to see The Lion King at a downtown theater. Although we purchased tickets last summer, the best we could get were in the nosebleed section. Nevertheless, I ought to be just a tiny bit excited by this.

We're meeting at the apartment of one of the women for a glass of wine with some cheese and fruit before driving to the theater. My 3 companions are in a frenzy of excitement. I am simply feeling pushed.

"Self," I say to myself, "get over yourself." It doesn't seem to work.

I am already worried about how to beat feet out of the facility at a reasonable time with visions of a thousand hands grabbing at my shirt tails to hold me back.

Poor me.

Visual feast does not even begin to describe the experience. The play ought to be described as an international treasure. I think I could watch it 6 times a year and not tire of it. Highly recommeded.

Sounds like something I'd love. Once had the pleasure of seeing Cirqe du Soleil and I imagine Lion King onstage being even more sumptuous!! It's nice to hear you had a good time :)
