Got thoughts flowing through my mind for a story that is somewhere between
Could be operating off of gut feeling, with no good reason to say when you think of me I am thinking of you because logic makes that seem questionable.
But it also makes it seem likely, possible and probable.
Some fires are lit by lightning strikes and you can’t ever quite damp the flame.
So we ask What About A Lifetime Of Unfinished Business and look for answers.
Standing in the parking lot of a BJ’s having helped to celebrate a colleague’s 30th anniversary it occurs to me that had I turned left instead of right I could joined in the early 90s as well.
Could have taken a very different road in many ways and ended up in a position like my own father and been able to say I had one employer for my career.

Standing there it occurs to me I made my first trip to Dallas in 1993 but who I was 30 years ago isn’t who I am today.
Had a couple of people talk to me then about potential opportunities here that I didn’t pursue. Was a different world, Ann Richards was the governor, housing was significantly cheaper and there were far fewer people.

I am going to be bold. Going to make some noise and make my presence known. Played ninja long enough, it is time for the sleeper to rouse himself and see what happens when he pushes the limits a little bit.
Quiet time is over, spring storms are coming so might as well dance in the rain and the fire.
Ought to be fun.
