This is my Now page for November 1st 2021 — what I’m up to this month.
Working far too many hours in the day far too often. I don’t know yet if all the working will really work out or not, but I do see the possibility of turning the corner soon as my team grows so I can actually get to finally do the work I was hired for. I should know this within the next month or so. Fingers crossed!
- Learning to Fly
Yes, as I posted recently I’m going for my Private Pilots License now. From sailing in the waters of the San Francisco Bay to sailing through the air from the center of stunning Utah! I’m pretty excited about this newfound desire, which came up fast from out of nowhere, much as sailing did. It just feels right, I don’t know how to express it, but it’s a good thing.
- Catching up
In the midst of all the long days of working, the simple mundane elements of life have been by the wayside far too long. I’m picking up those pieces and chipping away at the backlog of stuff like my health. Minor surgery and other healthy things that I’ve put off too long are finally hitting the calendar and happening.
For the first time since the Pandemic set in, I’ll be traveling back to California this month for my Sister’s wedding. I’ve not seen her or the Rogers side of the family for longer than ever, apart from on Zoom. Looking forward to this! It’ll just be a quick trip for the occasion though, no playtime with friends yet.
Yeah, this one doesn’t have an off switch for me, but there are times when I’m focused on thinking small & strategically and other times when I’m really thinking big & imaginatively. On my walks and in my evenings, I’m thinking big more these days. The longer arc of the world and my place in it, and how to ride this time best. You’ll find more such reflections here in November, I think. As such, I’m also reflecting on my previous two Now pages for Novembers past, 2020 and 2019
How about you? How are things in your world these days?
