Windowless in luxury

I'm in the midst of a three-day contract for the 78th annual meeting of the Canadian Paediatric Society -- Canada's nationwide organization for children's doctors -- which is taking place at the Bayshore Hotel, Resort, and Conference Centre on the waterfront in downtown Vancouver. I am compiling, writing, editing, taking photographs for, designing, and laying out a daily four-page newsletter covering ongoing and upcoming events at the conference for the 500 pediatricians and others who are attending it.

The Bayshore was built in the '60s, but in the past two years was completely gutted and renovated. It has a spectacular location on Coal Harbour and an astounding view.

Of course, I am doing most of my work in a windowless meeting room deep in the bowels of the structure. I rarely see daylight. But when I do venture outside to take a break, it's breathtaking, especially since the weather is warm and sunny.
