New Job For Burfday!

Started at AOL yesterday and it was a phenomenal first day. The day began with a 2 1/2 commute. Yeah, 150 minutes of hiney-numbing fun which was courteous of an accident on the Beltway and me not hitting the backroads sooner. The drive home - 90 minutes. Much better but that may be the best it's gonna get since I'm commuting from Columbia, MD to Sterling, VA. We'll see what happens today!



Meanwhile, I'll be auctioning my birthday suit to the highest bidder today. Here's a picture of it being worn by someone looking like Lyle Lovett. Well, actually, he might look better than Lyle but I digress. Hilarious!

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.
