Typing this out from a log on a beach where I’ve decided to take my lunch break. Mountains are out to the west and to the southeast. There’s a shipping container returning to the pacific.

Last Thursday I learned there was a period of time where my employment was in jeopardy, roughly November to February, as me and my team were moved from R&D to Quality. A very frank conversation with the VP of my department, and one I benefited from. It did result in anxiety the rest of that day, then a bit of anger, then empowerment that I’m still here, and a great amount of respect for my direct boss for the support he provided during that time period.

Now I’m being told by everyone how good of a manager I am, to keep doing what I’m doing, and that I have a lot of options in what I could do next here.

Life’s good. Have a climbing trip this weekend. Have a lot of climbs planned. Meeting some great new people and friends from climbing groups on Facebook, of all places. Putting myself first and understanding what I want out of life…and realizing how much of it is about place. kleinbl00 I think I’m moving slightly closer to ending the search for the greenest grass.
