People

Today was a good day. I patched out some minor bug fixes in the morning, and was on call in the afternoon. Though at times I am surprised by how little our users know about a system they use every day of their work lives, it makes me feel like I have accomplished something to help them out, and perhaps make a part of their day a bit better.

Lunch was at Panda Express in the mall. I really enjoy the food court in the mall. It is so fascinating to observe people. Couples, both old and young, Parents, Children, everyone acting out their lives as if on a stage, yet they have no idea they are being observed. Humanity is so vibrant, yet surprisingly fragile. I learned that a dear friend tragically died this evening. You never can tell when or how things will change.

Carpe Diem, maybe cliché but so very true.
