After vowing to join my significant other on more business trips, I find myself posting from Washington D.C. this week.
That said, I’m having a wonderful time. The weather is lousy, our hotel has a great exercise room, and Starbucks is only minutes away. Most important—I have SCAPPLE!
Scapple is, in my humble estimation, one of the most brilliant brainstorming tools I have ever run across. It’s mind-mapping software in its most user-friendly form. Jot a thought here, another there, a few more over there… line them up, down, across, or connect them with a line. It’s like brainstorming on a yellow legal pad, only better because you can move your ideas around, organize and reorganize them however you want.
I know… it’s not baby pandas, but it is beautiful, don’t you agree!
So, while I’m not doing a lot of sight-seeing, I am actually accomplishing a lot here in D.C.(Which is more than I can say for the politicians!)
Just so you don’t think it’s all work, work, work… below is a video of hubby and me on Sunday morning visiting the National Cathedral. If its arches and spires don’t inspire you, nothing will. Moreover, while I may not be Episcopalian, I’m so grateful we attended mass. The Very Rev. Gary Hall gave one of the bravest, most inspiring sermons I have ever had the honor to listen to.
