eagle’s flight – where next? – 9/1/14

I’m not retired yet. I’m not done working for at least part of a living. But I am done with learning the next new open source programming language. I am done with competing with 20 & 30 somethings over things they learned in school, that I have picked up along the way. I love writing poems, music, meditations, etc … but doubt that writing can support me at the level I desire. This doubt and changes in my life’s rhythm somehow make it harder to choose what I love doing, when I “should be making money”. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – on doing it wrong – 7/24/14

I’ve worked for years in software testing, finding problems in other people’s work, and then telling them about it in such a way that they will fix the issue. Along the way I’ve been told many different ways that I just don’t understand, that the problem doesn’t exist. And sometimes they are right. But other times the cliff I see ahead really does exist even if I can’t convince them of the problem. So I walk ahead and post a sign or create a bridge or a stair down and then I wait for them to come running up to discover … a cliff with a sign showing the way down. They call to their fellows to follow them as they’ve found a way past this new obstacle. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – breathe the way through – 6/28/14

My job situation has changed and I’m looking for a new way forward. I’m looking for a new job that is more in keeping with my current talents, desires and callings. And I’m rather done with trying to keep up with 20- or 30-somethings learning new computer languages constantly and eager to jump on the next new wonderful idea to be built out of the internet clouds. And I’m rather done with managers who ask for things because they can measure them, not because they are the right things to be doing. So I find my self at the end of one road, and I’m beginning to see bits and pieces of what a possible new road looks like. It seems like there are new things all around me, in front and behind. And I’m only beginning to make some kind of sense out of them. (and I suppose this comes from following a God who is “new every morning”, perhaps I’ll need to get used to it). Continue reading
