Update on life and some ponderings on change

Some people have been asking what has been going on in my life, so here is a short list of highlights: I go back to work soon at the Belasco theatre to work on Shakespeare for the next 4 months; I am planning on running for an executive board position in my union; I am regularly involved in volunteer work at least once a week with my church; myrddan's birthday is Friday and we are having DQ Ice Cream cake; I've been living in this wonderful city a bit over a decade now and a few people have been friends with me for just as long (!); my 10-year high school reunion is also this year and I plan to attend; we've been watching the early seasons of SNL and have enjoyed the Land shark sketches quite a lot.

And now, my mild pondering....

Yesterday, at church, there was a lesson given about the pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley and how Brigham Young was sending people to settle in different parts of Utah. The teacher was discussing how hard it would be both then and now to leave everything behind after one had been working so hard for seven years and to just go somewhere else, and how, he could not do that. I could. If I was told we had to go, and we had to leave mostly everything behind, I would be ready to do that. We have been planning for that for years. For the day when the power goes out and does not come back on. For the time of the Solar Flare that we cannot stop. We have been planning to leave all behind. Granted, this is an extreme scenario and not religious persecution, but it is something we have been planning.

Anyway, that's all for now. Thanks for reading.
