For the second time in my life, my job of work position has been made redundant. Both have occurred in the last six years. The first rocked my world, this last one, well i sort of embraced it straight away and thought, no, not again , I’m not going to let it affect me like last time.. I’m wondering how different it would have been if I wasn’t watching/listening to Stephen Wolfram videos on YouTube. I sort of thought, well, All I have to do is put a computational thought pattern into play to deal with this and I’ll be sweet, yep, I don’t even have to try too hard, my brain can do it while I sleep. I feel great. I know that I will work, I know that life goes on regardless of me, so be it. The one thing that did affect me was the thought of how little I have , or could, or wanted, to convey, my changing way of dealing with major issues to those closet to me, my two teenage daughters and my beloved Pammy,
SO, the reason for this endeavour of bloggyness is to leave a trail for my two daughters to discover one day in the medium favoured to them. I could write a diary, it would more than likely be tossed, this way I figure it will remain. Maybe Pam will come on board with this blog in time and also leave some thoughts for our girls to ponder on, way off in the future..
I must give a note of gratitude here to Richard Clarke of kiwicafe (wordpress) fame for planting the seed of possibility in my brain that I too could author my own way out of my bottled thoughts, publish and be saved ! Thank you Richard for your shared contemplations on life lived and of what to come.
And so, from here it may ramble, to the unconcerned, but to those I concern in my life, there will be meaning. I am away on my galloping blog-horse, altho I get the feeling we will soon come to a walk ..but for now, I am off to drink beer with a friend and play some music, for that is my rest and we need to take our rest when we can.
