First commute to work in 16 months

The commute

Not since my rapid exit from Dell after the MessageOne acquisition have I commuted to an office to work, and so today marked a return to that time honored tradition, albeit a very different wrinkle on things.  First, there’s not another soul in the office I work in.  Second, I rode my bike to the office.  And third, it was cold inside and outside of the office.  But overall the day was great.  I could focus on the tasks at hand, I rode my bike to and from work and to and from lunch, and went home with a distinct sense of accomplishment.  Working at home is cool, but it doesn’t offer the boundaries that an office provides.
