awhile since I posted anything. I go through those spells occasionally. Lot’s of things going on around me, I suppose I just get lost in the midst of it all.
The new job is still going well, might be a honeymoon type phase but I get the feeling that it is just going to be a good job. Margins are tight but they are everywhere these days as the globe shrinks so that isn’t unique. During my trip to the home office, I did get a better understanding of the culture and vision of the future. To be honest, the plant I’m running doesn’t seem to fit in the vision except on a peripherial basis. On the flip side of that is the abundance of capacity that is underutilized and the opportunity that presents.
Got a call from 1 the other day, she’s doing well as usual. Going 4 wheelin’ this weekend. Ah, to be young and free! Nothing quite like it. The problem with getting old isn’t necessarily the gettin’ old part, it is the loss of freedom. I miss freedom and the sense of adventure that youth has. Again, the adventure part is not lacking, it is the freedom.
2 had a concert we went to on Saturday, it was really quite impressive. The camp that she attended was for five weeks and the group of kids was well above the median in their drive and accomplishment. And it showed up in the final concert. Not as good as a professional symphony but very tight and balanced.
I suppose that is enough for now. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my place in this world and how small and insignificant it is. Late.
