What I’m Grateful For: Thirsty Thursdays

So today, for the first time since March 5, we had an in-person (outdoor, distanced, on blankets, without sharing food) Thirsty Thursday. I don’t even know when this Cevado tradition started, but when I walked into Cevado for my first week, the team was clear – don’t mess with Thirsty Thursdays! And the tradition stuck.

The last few months, we tried to do it on Zoom, and while nice, it was a pale shadow of the old days. But today, we all sat in the hot sunshine in the baseball park and it just leveled me, how much my team and the combined energies of all the beautiful people on it make me so full of gratitude and joy.

This, the first Thirsty Thursday out of COVID, goes down in my books as the best one ever.

What I’m Reading: The Great Influenza by John Barry. Again, I just started this one – haven’t even finished the first chapter yet – but the writing is excellent, and the book looks like it will be a great read. Timely, too. I am captivated by the unfolding of the story of the scientific learning that happens in real-time during a pandemic. By watching the story unfold itself today, then reading about a previous epidemic as a cohesive narrative, I feel a glimpse of how the future generations will understand the reality that is currently unfolding. It feels strange to be inside that story itself, not knowing how it ends, what the mop-up looks like, how it will be remembered in the future. Fascinating time to be alive, for sure.

Web Tip: Internet Marketing is vast and its very easy to get overwhelmed quickly between email marketing, social media, video marketing and all of the other digital channels out there remember to pace yourself. Master one and then move to the next.
