good times

Toronto, 2017.07.07

I had lunch with two colleagues who lost their jobs the same day I did. Happily, at the three month anniversary of that rainy day in April, both have landed new roles: one with a bank and the other with a software firm. We gorged on Lebanese and traded notes on our new roles.

Three reasons to be thankful:

  1. Good food,
  2. Good friends,
  3. Good times (and a very good time to be moving on)

In other news, it took me two hours to get home last night. Problems with my front brakes not once but twice. And no fewer than two flat tires! I'm losing confidence in the old set of patches I've been riding with – an unexpected down-side to having had so few flats over the past years.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

In the wake of 9/11, we [in America] have made the decision as a society that we can never again create something in which we can take pride, for fear that someone will destroy it. Moreover, we must suppress any trace of individualism, lest someone have the desire to rise above the bland sameness that protects us. I have, alas, no idea how to recapture our courage.
