Wirelessness

So far, so good. I've survived 5 days WITHOUT A CELL! Can you belive it? My cell was the work phone, so when I turned that in Friday upon my departure of W*USA9, I entered foreign terrority: a wirlessness world! Horrors.

Actually, it's been refreshing. No constant pings from incoming emails or texts. No additional ringys from whomever. While driving around for errands...yeah, there's a part of me that'd like to have a cell handy. Or while in the Highlander to Ocean City tomorrow, yeah, I'd like to have the freedom to search the web. But I can wait.

My hope is that I'll get a cell with the new gig at AOL and perhaps a laptop. We'll see.
For now, we're off to the OC until Sunday morning. Chow for now!

Being Intentional After A Layoff

One week ago today, I was laid off. It's still rather surreal. But I believe even in a layoff, one can be intentional.

Today, working for a company more than a few years is rare. There was a time when being an employee for one, two, or even three decades was admired and rewarded. In the tech industry, three years seems the average. 
After three years, a worker can become an oddity. With nine years at AOL, I must've been a fossil. I wondered sometimes if people thought I had no ambition to "climb the corporate ladder." Or if I was one-dimensional and didn't wish to better myself. Else, why would one stay at the same job for nine years?

Finding Clarity From Swamps

Did you know you can find clarity from swamps?

I shared recently with a friend who is processing a difficult situation that he and I were in our own "swamps." It's difficult, frustrating, confusing, easy to get bogged down, scary, and has lots challenges. But if we weren't there, we would never learn what the Lord is trying to teach us.

My layoff is like a swamp.
