Last day of vacation. As you read this, I am probably rolling through Wyoming at this point headed home.
One thought that has occurred to me as I was setting this vacation up and then as events in my own personal life developed is that everything is sort of reaching a crescendo of sorts, a fin de siecle, an end of the age sort of thing.
Maybe not right at the moment I walk back into my real life of course, These things never come together quite as cleanly as we would like to imagine. But there is definitely a sense hanging over me that the next turning is around the corner, that the last seven years or so have been a long transition, partially from The Firm but also from being buffeted in my career field to actively choosing my course in my career field.
I am excited about the other areas of my life as well. The last seven years has been truly amazing in terms what I have attempted to do and learned to do. Even within these areas, there is a sense of moving forward towards greater ability and (hopefully) greater autonomy.
I would not say that future looks bright. I know enough not to say that. But I can say that the future looks as good as it ever has.
