My last day of work




Tonight I am leaving a job that I have had for fifteen years.  I wish I could say I am emotional about the whole thing.  Perhaps I will be.  The Coronavirus news is crazy.  Every major festival, concert or any place where groups gather is affected.


We have a month to visit all of our favorite places in Michigan.  I hope all of the places we wanted to visit across the country will re-open.  Broadway is closing up until April 12th.  Disneyland is closed.  It won't be long until every major concert tour is cancelled as the virus has been declared a Pandemic.


I find this all frightening.  The ecstasy of leaving a job that was merely a job eludes me.  It paved the way for me to have a house, raise our daughter and live peacefully by ourselves.  It also damaged my body, stressed me out and has felt all-consuming.  The people I worked with will be the ones I think of fondly.  


Sorry, if this is a rambling mess.  Kind of mirrors the inside of my head.  To bring it back to the Wheel, I relate to these characters in extreme moments of distress.


My thoughts go out to anyone reading this blog.  I hope you are well and safe.
