I told myself that I was looking forward to returning home. To my own bed (although the sleep I got in the silence of the Park City night was the best I may have ever experienced). To regular exercise and home cooking. To the routine of my everyday life. And I was looking forward to that. And even though I knew I would miss my colleagues (it\u2019s happened every time I return from a trip), the weight of the fog of sadness still surprises me when it descends.<\/p>\n<p>I read their blogs.
