Change is in the air, darn it.
I cannot see it. But I can feel it.
The feeling is washing over me more and more. And there are real, practical outcomes of this.
For the first time in forever, I contradicted a superior in a meeting. Laughed out loud at a suggestion they made which was 10 times more difficult and less relevant than the one that we had come to weeks before. And when I mean out loud, I mean shockingly so. There is no forward there now, only the establishing of hard won positions.
I have openly begun discussing the possibility of not being there much longer at my current place of employment. I have begun - oh, how I have been down this road before - of beginning to look at the activities and things in my life, to begun to ask the question "Would I still do this? How will I do this?"
There is nothing of course, nothing but the sense that a corner has been turned. The dice are rolling, even if I cannot see where they end up from my view of the table.
But hearing the sound, I know they will eventually stop.
And I want to be ready to leap when they do.
