What are the odds that my closest friend and I, he in the hardware industry and I, in software, would both lose our jobs during the very same week? Talk about synchronicity! As it happens, full-time employment wasn't the only thing that we shed this past week. My mother recently lost all of her hair as a result of the chemotherapy treatment she is undergoing for breast cancer, so the two of us decided to shave our heads as a gesture of solidarity.
I wasn't kidding when I said that I was facing this transition with an open mind! Thanks to all of you that have shared your best wishes for my future endeavors. Having offloaded the weight of the corporate world... and now my hair, I feel more invigorated than ever to take on my next challenge. Stay tuned for details.
