One of the most annoying things in life is to be stuck in a loop. This used to be called being stuck in a rut. I disagree with the description. You create a rut from walking or driving the same path over and over. Despite the negative association, a rut is the result of purpose.
On the wayto major life changes, I got an opportunity to take a course on Photography. This is new ground for me. Most of my studies have been in science, business, and technology. The only exception was that voice class I took my freshman year at University.
I say that this detour is new because I feel like a fish out of water. There are words I do not understand, which is entirely new in itself.
I think my biggest fear is discovering that I've been overthinking what it means to be a photographer. On the one hand it would be liberating to know I have what it takes. On the other hand, it would be an indictment on my failure to push on.
All that aside, I think I should enjoy the coming weeks and the demands of learning about the art of photography.
A couple of months ago, I started feeling like my life was about to change again. I felt like, somehow, I had reached the end of a phase and had to step up to the next level. I could not pinpoint exactly what actions or circumstances created this sense of . . . building. It is as if I am not done expanding.
The struggle with the digital lifestyle continues. I have long been an advocate of using technology to improve one’s lifestyle, improve collaboration, and to keep things more or less organized. In most cases, I am a walking solution looking for problems that lack technology.
Yet, I find myself at odds with technology when it comes to making significant strides in my personal and professional goals. I have always required some degree of deep concentration and time to process all that must be juggled. Lately, however, the need is becoming more pronounced.

I just received the ULINE catalog. I find myself more excited than I should be. I think facility management is starting to grow on me.
