The more things change, the more they stay the same....
Perhaps this morning I feel particularly wistful.
The last couple of years have been a real challenge for me. Not bad mind you- but challenging. All kinds of changes. Personal, professional, and many instances of floating on the wind without direction.
Two and a half years ago I was the IT Director for a national charity. A homeowner. And a married man.
Today I have a small apartment, a small car, small income.
But it's a big life. And very satisfying.
I've always been a "Early adopter". Early into new technology. Early into new ideas. That's how I got into computers.. back when it wasn't cool. That's also how I got into e-cigarettes- when hardly anyone knew about them.
Early. It's a theme that repeats itself. In fact... if you are reading this... you are probably one of the "Early People". People who arrive early to the party... before the idiot who throws up in the bean dip.
I suppose that is why I have such an affinity for this community. For activism.
Some things will always change. But I think most of the people in this community seem to arrive "Early".
Good company. It's nice to know you.
