I seem to have arrived at one of those crossroads in life that come up every so often. When I wake up tomorrow morning, for the first time since I turned 16 years old I'm going to be among the ranks of the unemployed. I've seen this coming for the last six months because my company acquired two others and found itself seriously strapped with debt and with more than a thousand extra employees. But still, now that it's finally happened, I find myself a bit stunned by the reality of the situation. I'm going to miss my co-workers and the comfort of working for a company that I know so well, obviously, but I'll also miss the daily walk that I took every noon:
This is a view of the office building from the waterway across the street. The waterway walk was opened about two years ago and I put it to good use in all but the worst Houston weather.
These are just a few of the things and places I passed along the path each day.
I plan to take it slow for the next couple of weeks so that I don't rush into anything that I'll regret. I suppose the good news is that I'll have more time for reading and blogging...time to turn one of life's pages.
