I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks – Daniel Boone
Today is day one of the new adventure. 1st of July. Contract with ABB completed on the 30th of June. It’s a Friday, so the new career will more “properly” start on Monday, however half the point of the new career is to abandon fairly meaningless constraints, like days of the week, and do the thing that seems right at the time that seems right. And right now it seems right to sit on the balcony with a coffee and think about direction.
Like Boone, I’m not lost. Nor am I particularly confused. Slightly cautious maybe. But ultimately I’m pretty sure I’ve made a big step in the right direction… just a fair bit of wading/swimming through swamps perhaps before I find solid ground again. However (as I’m sure you’ll agree if you’ve waded through a swamp) it’s much better to go wading than it is to stand forever on your small island in the swamp and watch the water level gradually rise and the edges subside. If you’re going to wade, better to do it while you’re still able to handle the occasional Anaconda/Alligator.
Anyway. I’m no fool. Found a gun and a boat – the future looks good. Good, and also mine. Great success.
