stretching


I get to speak to a group tonight on a subject that I've spoken on a few hundred times. It's kind of nice to be able to walk into the room and talk for two hours about something that's important to the folks in the room...and not have to prep. In actuallity, I've "preped" for a few thousand hours on this particular subject...just not lately.

I think we've all got stuff that we know pretty well. There are some subjects that we feel fairly comfortable talking about...and maybe even discussing with others.

There are two or three of these things that I feel fairly comfortable talking about, with just about anybody, anywhere, in any context.

Moving to Cincinnati, moved me away from some of these subjects. I sometimes struggle with moving into a new phase of life, when I feel like I've picked up a thing or two in my last arena. It seems like I've got some knowledge that's just sitting around now.

Lots of us have learned a job or a skill and then moved to the next thing...it's just weird. It feels like you spend a couple of years saving up to buy this nice car, you drive it for a few weeks....and then you start saving up for the next car...and the first one sits in the garage.

Anyhow, it'll be nice to take the old car out of the garage tonight...hopefully.

    Speaking of cars, does one have the appropriate OHIO plates since it has been here for 18 months? (or are we holding on to the past?)
