Random reflections

I am happy this week is coming to an end and am gearing up for a getaway in the weekend. Nothing special, but yes, with the family...quality time. There are times I feel anything is better than staying home and being mired in the weekend the house, spying corners with forgotten dirt and cobwebs, stocking up the kitchen and fridge, settling the odds and ends, changing linen and curtains, vacuuming the place and a zillion other things.

Actually I realised my job isn't too bad. Everyday I am onto something new. The sectors I handle gives me the variety my restless self craves for. Just last week, I met the chief of a large film production and music company, a brilliant scientist who is the inventor of the Intel web cam, a director who has produced two vernacular award winning films, a fiesty woman entrepreneur who produces eco-friendly material and so on. Which other job can get you to meet such a mixed palette of clients? And each one of them is so different from the other. And I am the common thread through all of them....

But besides the job, one is not happy with policies of the powers that be. Around 27 jobs have been made redundant. You see people with lost jobs but smiling faces on the corridors. My department is not under the ambit of the cut. But it could be only a matter of time.

But before such time comes, I would have delved into my inner strengths and resources to make my life less dependent on the marketplace and more reliant on my inherent abilities.

I have been prolific lately. Writing is the best catharsis for me and I am so glad I know it.
