These past few days highlight that the world changes, one can’t sit idle and just watch the world go by for too long. The people in this photo don’t matter for this story, but they are known to the author.
This story here is that everything is changing and that is a good thing. There are cycles, like spring, floods and the time of day.
It is important to stay focused and not fall into a trap where one would think that things will continue for a long time. Here in these photos nature needed to change and adapt to the water and weather.
But in our modern lives we also need to adjust and change to the work environment and adapt as needed.
One of those nights where you wake up way too early and think about the events that happened the last few days. I wanted to pick an image and just work it, fitting it into my framed thoughts and reflecting on what it means. There is a long road, some people doze off and need to hit the breaks, while others can coast on the road.
As the image here is also dream-like with a long straight road, it’s also boring to look at it too long. It’s easy to sit back and let the computer drive while sipping on a drink. In some ways that is needed, but also that can cause one to fall asleep as seen by these skid marks.
Would a windy road, many turns, obstacles and dangers be more interesting? Going off road there are many things one needs to do to prepare: check supplies, tires, pressure, make sure cargo is secure, etc. But the memories are more rewarding, the energy needed is higher and the drinks need to wait to be consumed.
So now the question is keeping me up tonight, should I continue on the smooth drive, sipping my drink, or change paths and take the new road. The destination may be the same in both, but as the saying goes, “it’s the journey that matters, not the destination”
In this instance I need to plan and make preparations for change.
Trying to get on with the ideas, and often just starting is the hardest. This post here is to play with the process and get the idea of to write and publish. Irony is when there is too much free time then it is hard to focus, but when time is short rings get done. Need to stay busy and just send it.
Slowly starting a new year, and with that new paths and goals.
Six year pause and a lot of new adventures, challenges and goal set. Plan now is to take them one-by-one and just go at them. One of these goals is to be a better writer and experience with thought organization and presentation. No better way to do that that just work at it.
Some updated goals for this site are to focus on technical aspects. When I started this blog, there was no Kubernetes and the entire industry looked quite different. Now we are moving into more modular and smaller services that will be broken down into discrete components, managed by different teams. Not like the old IBM or Cisco models that was a one-stop-shop.
Learning the new stack and navigating it is more challenging as there is no prescribed path that is easy to follow. This blog is an instrument that I am using to collect and publish my findings along this path. I also want to share other topics in travel, nature and adventures that are there to inspire and add to the narrative of this blog.
This is a view from my home and I’ve always wanted to photograph it. This day it was just done raining and the patterns were just right, also had my camera ready. Image below is the JPG from the camera, but there’s a processed one on my Photoshop blog.
Up along the coast, exploring California and stumble upon this park. It had some Native American sculptures and also locals kayaking in the river below. I do like how the river flows and guides into the hiking path.
