Summer doldrums–a good time to catch up with people, professionally and socially. A guy I meet once a year or so cancelled our networking coffee. “Let’s do after Labor Day. Taking my family on vacation next week.” Family?! Woah, Nelly. This is the same guy who thought getting bottled service at a bar was cool. That was not that long ago.
Surrounded by friends moving, sending kids to school, having more babies–all that’s considered onward and upward–I wonder, are doldrums only for the summer? Or for me, forever?
