We have just about come to the end of one road and the start of another.  Personal life, professional life, and more or less all I have known of adult life, is soon to change.

This marathon in the desert is nearing completion, just a few more miles to go.  I am trying to keep my eye on the end while not forgetting to enjoy the scenery.  It is not always easy.  Some days I want to rush it, to fly through these remaining 63, and just have it over and done with.  To move back to green spaces, to have that thesis written, to have the "I dos" said.  But, they say, that this time of trapezes, when you are not still here but also yet to arrive there, should be appreciated.  So, I'm going to try to work on that.  But still, I'm ready for June to be here.  Three and a half years seems like enough.

  1. If You mix up a couple old cigarette commercials, it would go something like: "I would walk a mile thru the dessert for a Camel." You have certainly walked in the footsteps of a Camel and now it is time to move forward. Lots of Friends, lots of memories,lots of mediocre construction. These will all shape the future. Look forward to the future, take time to smell the roses, and cherish the memories.

  2. I admire your stamina...3.5 years is certainly enough. You've matured, grown personally and professionally. The future should only be brighter. I'm happy that you have Pablo to hold your hand. Enjoy. Love, M
