I attempted to upload a picture that said "Welcome to Alabama the beautiful", but there was in internal error that prevented that process. This does not bode well for technology in that state.
A couple of weeks ago I went down to LA and felt that things were changing, I just didn't realize how drastically. Within the span of a few days I had three job offers to consult. It sort of kills this semester, but all of them are opportunities that I should really take.
The first two are actually together. My best friend from high school is starting his own business in Huntsville and needs some help with the EPA and regulations. They have a sister company that they are working with who needs the same sort of help. Late next week I will be getting on a plane to Alabama that does not have a return flight. This is more than a little disquieting, but I don't know how long this process will take. Hopefully it should not be much more that a week or two. It could, however, be incredibly lucerative in the long run. This should be quite an adventure.
When I survive that I will come back home and deal with family Christmas. That is probably more dangerous than this hippy in Alabama.
In mid January I should be starting another contract job working for the woman who trained me in this business too many years ago. It will be fun to get to work with her again. We will work 18 hours a day, but it should again be short term lucerative and great fun. That hopefully will be about 6 weeks.
The good Frater has graciously volunteered for cat duty. I hope the two of them can work it out :)
So when I said the tides were changing, I had no idea how fast and in what direction.
All I keep thinking is of John Lennons line: " Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans."
My Pisces side is thrilled with the adventure and my Taurus side is not at all thrilled with the impending change to my schedule. The bull will just have to learn to roll with the punches. Yeah, I will keep you posted on that :)
For now I am off to contemplate my universe and I hope you enjoy doing the same.
