Today included a meeting of the Earth Care Committee. We've earned the Earth Care Congregation distinction for the fifth year in a row.
It was an efficiently run meeting, filled with people whom I greatly admire.
I went on to the WordPress meetup. There was a good presentation and a good discussion to follow it.
I think perhaps I am stressed. I don't know the last day I was alone in the quiet.
I am so lucky to have friends and family, interesting coworkers and clients, a good community to work in. I think maybe, though, I can't actually be social every day without consequences.
#1 daughter had some thoughts on the subject. First, she mentioned that there are lots of people who think that introverts are socially awkward. They expect introverts to stand around like Darth Vader, I think she said. As I write it, that seems unlikely. Maybe it was someone else rather than Darth Vader.
Anyway, she pointed out that I am not socially awkward and in fact appear friendly and outgoing, so I may be an "extroverted introvert." She thinks that dreading events is probably from agoraphobia. She also thinks I should arrange some down time for recuperation so I can enjoy my friends and family more.
