if I wrote up the events of the past 24 hours, or watched it all unfold as if a movie, I would have to say, “is this some odd science fiction movie?”
perhaps I would look at the diversity of people I interacted with and the various types and styles of conversations and wonder, “how many cups of coffee and rewrites had to be done to get that much oddity and diversity in human behavior in that movie?” it was a good, odd, strange, uplifting, bizarre and surprise filled day. notice, all surprises are not good, like dropping from the sky and actually wondering if this was the pilots first time landing a plane, did he just wake up from a nap, or did they have more than coffee in the cockpit? while i have been in enough close calls over the years, last night i had to wonder, "will the end come with what really was calm weather?"
its ok, you can laugh at my bad typing this day. I did not get all I wished done in Switzerland and have a ton to do here in the states which will be working more like a nomad to line up all the parts, people and spaces to get all the various prototypes done. it is an exciting time, of which, the lesson I took from yesterday was when I looked out the window at the airport in Zurich and saw the overflow parking staring for the world economic forum with the nicest and most beautiful private jets nestled between the tail section of a Swiss air jet. I think the Swiss air color and logo scheme is simply beautiful in its sense of what it conveys.
as we took off, I looked down and watched a different than normal flight path from me from the EU to the USA…I intentionally took a slightly different side trip because “I always wanted to see…(insert site)” and had to marvel at just how small man is in the planetary expanse of nature, yet, how good of a toolmaker man is to create the various cities and complex networks to travel and communicate within them.
but it was the sheer majesty of the glaciers, mountains, sea and space that had me simply look at the planet and wonder why it is so complicated for humans to get along, much less, come together and not try to destroy that which is different, but rather grow and learn how to make the planet a better place for all.
that is my soggy brained thoughts from lack of sleep, too many miles and a really diverse series of interaction between really unique and different folks.
