The World Has Turned and Left Me Here

The world has turned and left me here Just where I was before you appeared. And in your place an empty space Has filled the void behind my face. People come and go in your life. The types of people who make a tremendous impact on your life are usually the ones that don’t stick […]

The Horizon Has Been Defeated

I spend a good majority of my day explaining boundaries to my customers. The vast majority of those that call in for web hosting support, have no idea that there is a difference between building a website, hosting a website and sending an email. Because of this, I get asked a lot of questions that […]

Smoke on the Water

It’s been kind of a rough month for me. I have been going through a lot of personal issues that have absorbed most of my time. Because I am a glutton for punishment I have also quit smoking. This is not the first time I have quit, but with God’s help it will certainly be […]

Traffic in the Sky

There’s traffic in the sky And it doesn’t seem to be getting much better There’s kids playing games on the pavement Drawing waves on the pavement Shadows of the planes on the pavement It’s enough to make me cry But that don’t seem like it would make it feel better Maybe it’s a dream and […]

Gone

Two Step

Celebrate we will, because life is short but sweet for certain. We’re climbing two by two, to be sure these days continue. These things we cannot change. There might be some change in my life. I have been exploring several job opportunities, the best of which is T-Mobile. I have been really impressed by their […]

Elderly Woman Behind the Counter In a Small Town

Call it a lesson in sociology. As a way to help gauge my performance as a team leader I decided today to hand out feedback forms to my current team. Today was my last day with them, as I will be moving on to another team tomorrow. I figured it would be a great way […]

Badfish

Actually I had some really good fish. Went to Sakura Japanese Steakhouse in Boise. I went with a couple members of my team, Vance and Tabitha. I went to work to catch up on some coaching logs. They met me in the lobby. Vance had never tried Sushi before, so I figured today was as […]

Pearls To Swine

Things change back. No, not way back; not like I was. Not like before I moved out of my house in Southern California. I will never be that person again. I’m not changing, just my situation. I knew that business needs could change and that the position I was in might not translate into a […]
