Happy belated birthday to me

My birthday was yesterday and I worked all day long. I'm trying to finish up a project and I've got other projects waiting. I also have had enough days off this year. So, I decided to look at the fact that I had a job as a present. When I got home and checked my messages I discovered that I had one from a company that would like to talk to me more about a position for which I had applied. Yay! I haven't received any more news from the other company that had indicated interest in bringing me on to a project.

How much control does one have over ones life?

I think that most people would agree that I march to a different drummer -- maybe not 100% of the time, but more than most others do or are willing to. This is a tendency that has continued to manifest itself to a greater extent as I have gotten older, much to the concern of some of those in my life. Part of my desire to march to my own drummer is that I want to feel a sense of control over my life. In an effort to exercise that control I have been willing to take certain risks. A case in point is my current employment situation.

I call it meditation

Weed or flower?

Some time ago I read a book called "The 5 Rules of Thought" by Mary T. Browne. One point of the book is that whatever you put your focus and energy into is what you are going to create in your life. Ms. Browne recommends that people spend time each day to visualize the outcomes they want in their lives. So, after I read the book, I decided to start meditating.

Hello World!

Welcome to the site and welcome to my world.

I haven't done any personal blogging since the demise of gaia (nee zaadz). So, I figured that it was about time to launch my own blog. Plus, it gives me an excuse to launch yet another Drupal site. Yeah, I know. If all I want to do is blog, then I probably should use WordPress. Well, maybe I'll drupalize a WordPress theme. Right now, as you can see, I've just got the good old Garland theme up and running.
