02008: Explosive Creation

There's a lot going on pretty much on all fronts - beware of interesting times and all that jazz. But such times of turbulence also represents the beginning of new things. It's all very exciting, even if it means a lot of work in the short term and potentially a lot of craziness. There's a lot to learn and the need to hit the ground running, but we all do the best that we can.

Doing a little better with today's extended gaming session. Sure, I haven't slept since before yesterday's shift, but a steady supply of coffee coupled with general geeky excitement and gaming enthusiasm is keeping me vertical thus far. Well that and I guess a generally lighter sense of being. I'm not out of the woods yet, but at least I'm feeling a bit more relieved. Things are headed in the right direction.

And that's the thing really - growth is actually a crazy, tumultuous period. It involves a lot of chemical changes and cells re-forming into different configurations and new bonds forming. If you look at things at a small enough scale, the very act of creating something new can look a lot like destroying something.

We often need to destroy the old in order to prepare for what comes next.

Don't close your eyes. Don't hold your breath.
