For my part, this means I get a bit more stressed and I can't wait for the concert to be over, even though that time on the stage, in the hall, is like time suspended. It is the reason I do this.
Work is changing, too. The recruitment for my replacement is in process. Interviews next week. If someone promising shows, I will work with that person for a few weeks before I leave. And then I will take on zoning ordinance amendments on a contract basis, which really sounds terrific to me. I want to set up a plan for this, for how I will do the work, involving the other planners and Randy so there are no surprises, so everyone buys everything, as much as possible. I feel that my work in my home is proceeding at a slow but real pace and that this means I may yet get a functional office for myself.
Right now, though, it all seems like way too much. I just have to plug away without thinking too hard about it all.
