Donning this new mindset with admirable resolve, I sat at my desk and began by turning the page of the calendar to the month of February. And right before my eyes in glittering, exciting technicolor, I was faced with the vision of the most inspiring seascape I have ever experienced. I was looking at very clear cyan blue water peopled with scurrying tropical fish and the centerpiece of what I was to learn was the Andaman Sea - Andaman Island.
Rising majestically from the pristine waters, an enormous, vertically trapezoidal, green moss-covered blade of earth dominates. It could very well be a form of natural lighthouse set atop a huge undersea mountain. It was a vision that at once completely erased any thoughts of gray, of rainy, of sad Mondays. Moreover, it heightened, punctuated my resolve to make changes. Such is the power of natural beauty. It awakens the spirit, stirs the soul.
Propelled as I was on this lofty course, I decided that change number one would take the form of some type of follow through. By way of example several days ago we spoke of job- seeking and of what I thought would be my guardian - a company called Thumbtack. As that wheel of fortune turned, the guardian became one of anger rather than angel.
Suffice it to say that (face it, we all want to catch the 11:00 news) Thumbtack presented one mislead after another. My attempts at correcting errors went either unnoticed or ill- followed. In the end, it was the end. I refer of course, to the termination of our relationship, certainly not of my job seeking. It was a 'miss-tack'. I also spent some time talking about the indomitable spirit of our young in the face of what others might perceive as adversity. No changes there.
This morning I spent time catching up with emails and notifications. Apres B-ball games on Saturday we lunched at a New York deli. I guess that's put me in something of a Broadway mood.
