    Opportunity is often inconvenient. Wrenchingly, yet ultimately insightfully, I had two days in one week which were filled with the kind of “character-building opportunities” that might seem funny…someday far off in the future. They included a tense situation featuring our office staff circling around a suddenly and stubbornly silent computer as if it were the […]

    Opportunity is often inconvenient. Wrenchingly, yet ultimately insightfully, I had two days in one week which were filled with the kind of “character-building opportunities” that might seem funny…someday far off in the future. They included a tense situation featuring our office staff circling around a suddenly and stubbornly silent computer as if it were the community hearth gone cold, and another scene involving an urgently non-stop-talking insurance specialist with a dire case of foot odor as my seatmate on a much-delayed, cross-country flight.
