Another journal entry as I stand on the bridge between worlds, wondering what the future holds for me.

I resigned from my company last week; today was my last day. Not much fanfare to it; a dry sense of closure as I wrapped up the projects I could and said farewell to my comrades. I enjoyed the time I had there, but lacked a sense of passion about my work.

Now, looking forward, I have a sense of uncertainty and wonder. The crest of the next hill on this rollercoaster. I feel as if I have an opportunity to excel; to spread my professional wings and practice my art, insomuch as it is. Looking into my crystal ball, I see hazy images of long hours, strife, and a distant promise of satisfaction. A hope of reward.

Strange how it found me... by way of a recruiter, searching for some of my former colleagues, and finding me instead. A good fit into another start-up. Don't I ever learn? (Or is it just something I crave?)

I'm excited.

I stopped by Border's after work today and picked up a few trade rags, and a couple of movies: Say Anything and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. I'm watching the latter as I write this. I was also perusing the latest issue of Forbes ASAP and came across the following Kafka quote, in an article by John Perry Barlow:
It is not necessary that you leave the house. Remain at your table and listen. Do not even listen, only wait. Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone. The world will present itself to you for its unmasking, it can do no other, in ecstasy it will writhe at your feet.


The antithesis of the pursuit of happiness. The fractal path of agent Dale Cooper, following the strange attractor of his adventure in the background. Fitting, somehow.

*smile* It's good to see you being excited about work again. I think it's been a while since I noticed that kind of enthusiasm in you. Whatever happens, I wish you much future joy.
