It's Not Rocket Science: Week 25

We are all living at places in the world. I'm not sure how to better describe that thought in one sentence. 23,000 feet on a mountain in Pakistan, a hostel in Costa Rica, a couch in Seattle, a ledge in Yosemite, a cabin in Colorado, a street in Worcester, and a basement in Wisconsin. They are all places that a person can go. There are all simply places on the Earth. The air is more or less the same. The sun is the same sun. The moon and the stars are the same. We still need water. We still need food.

Just some musings now that I am back "home" with my family in Wisconsin. Everywhere I go I am still on the Earth, so far. It's an exponential relationship. The more I see the more I want to see. The more I do the more I want to do. The more I accomplish the more I want to accomplish. Perhaps this concept is only expressed modestly in my life. Anyway, I am in Wisconsin.

I'm visiting family, and waiting to hear about a recent job interview on the East Coast. In the past week I have also garnered an interview of sorts, for this coming week. It is with a large global company. A company that has produced one of the 100 richest people in the current world.

Overall the economy must be rebounding. In the last two months the job search changed. I had been applying with no call backs and no interest from companies in my skills. Now, I feel like I have a shot. Lunches, interviews, emails, and hope abounds.

I ran nine miles in two runs. My legs are still somewhat trashed from the 93 mile run two weeks ago. Fortunately, recovery is going better than expected. As for climbing, I started building a wooden fingerboard or hangboard.  Another project started! It will probably be done early this week. If it goes anywhere there will be more details.
