What The Present Does to the Past… Making our Future

on 19 October, 2015

On occasion, my depression is punctuated by bursts of energy. Or is it that I inject energy to try and lift myself out of my depression? I don’t know. All I do know is that occasionally, I manage to drag my ass out of the house and do something.

Of course, these days, whatever we do needs to be free or relatively so. I can’t figure out if having this year off is good for me or not. I am finding that as I get older, it gets harder to job hunt. And gets harder to want to job hunt. It seems strange that such a varied and fulfilling career that I have had should end on – what I perceive to be – such a low note. I find it hard to get excited about much these days, although I am still fully invested in technology and all that it offers, it is difficult to find something to challenge that part of me. In the early days of my career – well, to be honest most of my career – has been in new development and working with the latest technology. Not only leading edge, but as it has become known: bleeding edge. Not really knowing how the technology would be accepted by the masses, but always having the slightest edge into what was coming down the pike was enough to spark energy and excitement. Not so much these days.

So, this past weekend, The Kid and I headed out for another one of our abandoned house hunting trips. It seems to be sort of a catharsis; a direct reflection of what technology is doing for the world while watching what abandoning that which was already established. It makes for a reflected, even melancholy, exercise. Yet the weather was gorgeous and the trip did not disappoint.

We found three houses/farms, but only one really provided the kind of props conducive to great photos. I will let them do their own talking…
