A Solemn Observance

Today was Maundy Thursday. Our church held a modified Tenebrae service. Our choir performed “Song of the Shadows” – particularly fitting since Tenebrae means shadows in Latin.

We all wore black to mark the solemnity of the occasion. No one spoke after the service until we were in our cars.

Back to work….

… and learning yet more stuff! A full week of classroom training and I come home to a 2-hour class. This is fortunately an interesting WebSphere Content Management (WCM) prototype class, which builds on all the usability lessons I learned last week.

My poor back is paying the price for all this sitting. My chiropractor is gonna be rich.

Sick, sick, sick

After the excitement of the past week my body has decided to force me to slow down and recuperate. A sore throat and general tiredness have me in bed and gobbling Ricola drops.

It could be all the changes in temps. I flew home from the land of 42 degree highs to Columbia, where 55 degrees is considered cold. When I went to lunch yesterday with my friend Jill I didn’t wear a jacket, cause to me it was balmy! Bad idea.
