Dreaming of Life
Kevin Salwen on Travel

I'm in Seattle today, having schlepped here from Atlanta last night. By the time I arrived, my body was craving rest after the cross-country flight. I tucked into bed after midnight (3 a.m. my body's time), knowing that I had a breakfast and an early wake-up call. So, of course I didn't sleep well -- that's never easy to do on the road.

But the thing that kept running through my brain wasn't ad sales calls or TV interviews or stories for the magazine. No, instead, my uneasy dreams focused on the upcoming draft of 10-year-old baseball players for the Little League team I coach. In particular, I was (a) ready to choose an unexpected player and (b) being ridiculed for it by my fellow coaches. When I awoke this morning, the first idea that popped into my head was the mythical phrase 'work-life balance.' On this business trip, my brain turning to coaching kids' sports, it made me realize once again how seamless work and life and family and so on and so on has to be -- whether your conscious brain wants to separate them or not.

Life is work if adults act like big-league GMs in evaluating the talent levels of 10-year-olds. Just put some kids on the field and let them play!

Kevin: That's a great point! It's amazing what we learn when we pay attention to.. what we're actually doing in our heads.
