Dulles, VA: Heading back to my past

I’ll be in Virgina later this week, presenting at Cross Platform Media Teams for The Media Center, and giving a talk at NPR for an old friend.
As I’m getting ready today, I realized that the conference is being held at the Hyatt Reston Regency, the Hyatt at Reston Town Center.
Back in 2001, I spent 10 months literally living at that hotel–I was commuting to Dulles from California, arriving after midnight on Sundays, leaving on Thursday night to go home. My recollection is that I would come into town, work like a maniac for 3-4 days, leave and try to recapture my personal life, which had become very part-time, then get on the plane 36-48 hours after I’d come home to do it all again.
Needless to say, it was not a great time in my life–coming back to stay, 4 years later, will be strange.

    Many of us have both good and bad memories from that hotel! At least Paolo’s is just a block away. Have fun coping!

    Rseton Town Center is one of my favorite places … but even staying at the Hyatt Regency Town Center might be more than I can handle for 10 months.
    I have a Town Center links page Reston Town Center Links with some photos.
