Despite all the great things to do this week in Oakland, I didn't do any of them. Not the Cracking the Code screening, not the symphony, not the Oakland Urban Paths walk, none of it. I've been busy with work and starting to come down with something, so I skipped all those things. Instead, after a quiet couple of days (except the work parts), K and I went to church, then had some lunch, and took a leisurely walk through the gardens at Lake Merritt and then around the lake. And while I missed doing all those other things, somethings the simple things are enough.
