A friend is having a turning point in her life... Actually, more than one.
I know what that is like. Some years it happens all the time.
Last year, I had several turning points regarding my enterprise quarter. It seems it continues, with drought (funnily enough - and we need plenty of funnily enoughs in this era - due to severe flooding) to yet another turn in the corner.
My current role has morphed, and I am currently dealing with things like templates and macros and reports and data integrity and pulling my hair out because had I been able to plan the project rather than pick up in the middle and make the pieces fit and - oh, are your eyes glazing over?
Do you know that I actually know several people who would actually have nodded along with that.
But I also know a lot who put their fingers in their ears and go "la la la la la la la".
A bit like me and photography, really. I enjoy the outcomes and know enough people who do it well enough that I can graciously bow out before even entering the ring on that one, and I am not that upset.
It means there is more room in my brain for other stuff.
Unfortunately the "other stuff" space is being rented by worky stuff - some of the above and some of stories I am not at liberty to share.
But I do have room to know that it is a case of "some years it happens all the time" and go with the flow right now and see where it all leads.
I also know that the bread in the oven is smelling rather choice right now. I have done a double batch tonight - some for us, some for my sister who I will get to see briefly tomorrow.
