The Life of this cook is and has been one of many efforts, to get to the points that I have in this life.
Now at 54, my last 10+ years of work has taken me to places I'd likely not otherwise seen in this life time, had I’d chosen to stay in the midwest back in 1997.
I'm very appreciative and humbled by this, and what Ive learned from it.
But in recent years I'm conflicted terribly, about the work choices that Ive made.
And that I've made myself too available to my work, to the point of causing more problems.
In the past year + Ive learned the hard way that it's only a losing battle.
And get's me no further appreciation or advancement with the Employer I serve.
I need to be able to draw the line, and not always say YES.
This is the place where I leave these scribbles.
In truth I'm a pretty darn good Cook out of the 1980's that's made it this far and still working to find out where I belong.
I’ve got an idea, that includes the other side of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. And yes, it’s crazy.
It's hard to say what is to come in the next few years headed into 2020, but I'm betting on a change that's long since been needed.
What sits in some of the above links are years old and some a bit recent. Good luck navigating this basement of moments.
