It’s been quiet here for a couple of months. The cold weather and a bout of pneumonia has kept me pretty much under wraps for a good chunk of December and most of January.
While I was there, I went into ‘stealth mode’ and did some serious thinking about ‘what’s next’. I didn’t want to accidentally spill the beans before any decisions had been made, so Twitter and Facebook have been barren too.
Still waiting on a specialist to deal with the infection, but a decision has been made.
Monday January 31 was the end of the day job. It’s all good. It was a great job, and I love the people I worked with. But after 4.5 years there, I just feel ready for a change. I’ll take a short break to do some more planning about where I’m going from here, and then get on with it.
I marked my first day off by getting a city business license for Donsca Communications; a “marker in the sand” that says this is the time and place. That felt pretty good.
Business planning is underway, but still pretty basic. There are a couple of certainties though: I will take more pictures, and I will write more. I loved doing both when I had the chance at work and whenever I’ve had the time in the past. Now I want to take that passion and do something with it.
Thanks to some savings, I won’t starve, but the technology budget has been frozen as of now 😉 Ahh, the financial part is always the hardest to bear. Of course, there is also part time work or a contract or two, as needed to top things up.
I’ll have more news to share about the journey soon. I expect it will be a slow start, but worth it in the end.
