Remember that time when I was somewhere else?
Yeah. Me too. Good Times.
I’m still there, but I’m about to find myself going somewhere else.
Something, something leaves and wind. Time to Face the inevitable.
Seriously. I just frowned out. No, not really.
I am surprisingly melancholy. I’ve enjoyed my time here, and although I am far removed from all that I love, it has been a real education. I shall treasure it.
Next up, I will find myself in new scenic environs, with all new sights, sounds and coffee shops.
I’m not entirely sure how long this particular “regeneration” of my professional role will last, but it will, I am sure, be another fine mess I have gotten myself into.
I wonder what it will be like?
That’s not the question I should be asking.
What I should be asking is What will I be like after it’s all done?
Often, we find ourselves nose-pressed-to-the-silver-plate of unexpected challenge. That’s me when I’m not at home.
So I have elected to utilize my time to reach down, find some gravitas, and discover the person I really think I am. And the person I deserve to be. I “choose” the face I want to wear.
So stepping to the edge of the diving board, I take a Deep Breath, and jump.
Before I do though:
A moment of Silence for Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall, and Sir Richard Attenborough.
It’s been a hell of a week.
