Cryptic Entries

The past few weeks, I’ve been saying things, outloud and in person, about personal plans, positioning and movement to many people I know.

It’s been stunning to me that this process of simple external affirmation has had a profound impact on my acceleration along this trajectory from which I’m realizing there’s no longer a way to pull up… at least not at this speed.

The only place I haven’t really spent time really talking about this would be here, on this website.

A fellow austinblogger pointed out that I’ve been tending to be pretty opaque with some of my recent entries. While I generally hold my cards very close, this current stream of non-information is beyond that.

It’s really along the lines of “what is and is not appropriate to share in a public forum.”

It’s also one of these things that seems very important and consequential to me but I’m sure is trivial to well-adjusted
people (and will probably appear that way to me in retrospect).

For many weeks now I’ve been doing reflection on core stuff like, “Why am I on this planet?” This forum doesn’t really seem like a noble enough place to display these visionquest sketches… maybe a detailed rendering, but not the doodles.

So, for now, this is about as close as I’m going to get until all the chips finally fall: There is some stuff going on related to work (i.e. the “day” work: the work that gets me paid, that is).

Work stuff is always a hairy topic for personal websites. It’s unchartered territory and even innocuous posts sometimes end up with harsh consequences (ex. I met Queen of Sky at the last blogger meetup… her story is a fascinating example of how the edges can be so blurry).

Anway, I’ve already pushed the snowball down the hill, and now it’s a wait-and-see to determine how large it gets. When it crashes at the bottom, I will definitely post a what-the-heck-happened here.

(Can I be any more obvious? Seriously… contact me if you want to talk… I swear, I’m into talking right now).
