Small world!

Last week we pulled the kids out of school and headed south for four days at Disney World and three on the Disney cruise ship, with stops at Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s own Castaway Cay.

Lucky for our kids, Nancy and I are both heavily invested in the Disney Gestalt: Nancy is convinced that much of her adult aesthetic was forged in the “Small World” crucible, and I always come back from a Disney vacation with new energy for whatever organizational challenges I need to tame. From the plane to Orlando until the return to Newark, we enjoyed a weeklong trust fall … although landing back in workday Manhattan was a bit rocky. Whistle while you work!
