I have been rather quiet on this blog for two reasons: 1) the usual “I’ve run out of ideas to write about” and 2) very busy wrapping things up at work before I retire.
Today, however, I am in Alaska. Why?
… work, of course. I have even been offered a job here, but I am unwilling to relocate. I like the people I work with here a lot, but not the extremes of daylight and weather. As I write this, it is 0C with about -1000 wind chill. Brrrr!
Also, I must consider The Spouse. He would not enjoy living here. Trust me on that one. It takes a lot of getting used to. Nice place, great people, fascinating scenery and wildlife, but not quite our preferences for living.
Anyway, I will be very busy today and tomorrow for a brief but important visit and “brain dump,” as well as have opportunities to say goodbye to colleagues I have known and worked with for many years. I’m really going to miss them.
Life is short: love what you do, even if time is limited.
