In hindsight, I should've known better than to start a book (let alone read one) last week since the firmament was shifting beneath me.
  • My friend, accomplice and co-worker for nine years left my day-to-day after her grant-funded position had run its course.
  • We sold our car to one of the most kind, altruistic people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
  • We had three listening sessions related to the draft report on early childhood that I spent the better part of a year working on. (There's still time to comment.)
  • I had my annual performance review which further confirmed my belief that they do more harm than good.
And these were just the big ones.

I see this all clearly from a calm weekend as I reap the lessons of change.
