[travel|writing] Heading back to Omaha

Heading back to Omaha today for a week in the corporate office. This is my first trip to Omaha since last July (normally I go once every four to six weeks), and except for the November trip to San Jose, my first business trip since then. Part of a return to normalcy for me. Normalcy in 14 degree weather, of course.

This is a big step for me. A big piece of recovery from chemotherapy. A big piece of reclaiming my normal life.

And in terms of reclaiming, I'll be taking a stab at first draft fiction during my downtime on this trip. I often use airplane and hotel time for writing, so we'll see if the writing brain lights up this week. I'm a little fearful and lot optimistic. Wish me luck.
