Indy/Detroit – Rewind!

I was feeling guilty about not writing about my Indy/Detroit jaunt yet, but then I looked at the calendar. I got home late Monday night… a week ago. Tues-Thursday were spent catching up on “real job” work & sleep. Friday shot a wedding for 18hrs, Saturday sleep/work/bbq/watch the Texas race, Sunday sleep, grocery shop, work, catch up on writing/editing… today? (Monday) work, write, recap, upload photos, post!

One of the downsides of driving to events is that all that valuable commuting time, which I normally make use of in airport lounges and on planes, is spent actually driving. So no time to write, edit, post, etc… so bear with me as I go back in time to recap in what will surely be a random brain purge that will make little sense to anyone but me. Continue reading

Five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes…

How do you measure, measure a year…

In daylights, in sunsets In midnights, in cups of coffee

How do you measure, a year in the life?

I kept waiting for the moment when I could sit down and just write this, with dry eyes and clarity of thought. I thought that moment was now, but just like a few hours ago, and a day ago, and a week ago, and a month ago, the minute I began to type… the second I let my guard down…  my throat tightened and my breath quickened, and my eyes betrayed my stoic resolve, spilling hot tears down my cheek once again.

Indy/Detroit Post-Mortem ;-) (better late than never)

It’s funny… when I was sitting there thinking that I was frustrated about not being able to comment on Texas cause I haven’t seen it yet, I realized I hadn’t posted at all since before I left Toronto for my “Schwit/OWW Indy-Detroit Road Trip Spectacular Presented by Honda Canada!” or #soidrtspbhc for short! 😉

Even funnier is how different my post would have been immediately following Indy (judging by my cliff notes) then how different it would have been from that post, post Detroit. (again looking over my notes)

There will be a separate post on the said “presented by Honda Canada” car itself coming up, and I’ll pick up on the racing and the players again after that, but first, here’s a little post Indy/Detroit recaplet for posterity… Continue reading
