Best-laid plans

January 4, 2017 - 11:46am "An error occurred loading this content. Try again later." My friends and I were streaming the NYC ball drop on New Year's Eve when inexplicably in the middle of it, the feed dropped and we got that message. I'm not joking. In a year that was challenging for many of us in the room, we didn't even get the satisfaction of bidding 2016 goodbye in the traditional way. Instead, we looked at each other, laughed, took photos of the message (what's a funny story these days without capturing it for social media?), raised our glasses and wished each other a Happy New Year. It seemed like the perfect end to a somewhat crazy and unpredictable year. When you think about it, what year isn't a bit crazy and unpredictable? Even when you think you have everything planned, nothing is a given. Four years ago today, I was a day away from leaving on an incredible Spartan storytelling adventure that took me literally around the world. Ten years ago today, I was a day away from having a hunk of technology put in my chest to keep my heart beating normally. Three years ago today, I was thanking that hunk of technology for shocking me back to life two days prior. Sure, the trip was scheduled, but it wasn't like I could really plan for anything that happened those eight weeks. And the medical stuff? I had in no way planned on either of those things happening. To paraphrase my favorite Scottish poet Robert Burns, the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.

January 4, 2017 - 9:25am
