Waning days of the vacation.
Last day or so has been off but working on some things I
would definitely like to get done before I return. I have a
strong feeling that I am about to witness some basic changes
in my life. I don't want to go on or post an epic here.
When I left archeology behind, it was after 15 years of
happiness tromping through the American Southwest and Mojave
Desert doing environmental protection and consulting and
finding a lot of very significant prehistoric cultural
resources as I went. But my time came up for that. One
day, I just knew it. I was walking in a pretty park in Daly
City and I had this burst of realization that I would never
walk from "Barstow to Las Vegas" ever again nor would I work
on a 1,000 mile long natural gas pipeline or be on US
Government federal properties like the Forest Service or the
Air Force or the Navy. I walked away from that with some
sense of accomplishment but also a sense of completion.
I am nearing that also in other arenas. I feel I have
completed things and I believe change is coming. I believe
that change can be good and if one does not adapt and adopt
to it, it leaves you behind and you have not gained.
Where I am going with this, I don't quite know yet. I want
to announce something, but its too early. I want to find a
new place I can journey through, find some happiness in,
find a lot of challenge, and go for another walk in another
No big news for me on things Linux. I am happy with it. It
seems to encompass me with its flexibility and learning
abilities. I also feel so glad to know the people I work
with and have worked with.
