Here we go round again…

“Back to where we started , …here we go round again…

Back to where we started, come on an do it again…”

…The Kinks

I was always a strange kid, I had a board range of musical taste. One of my Favorite groups from the old days is the Kinks. Great Band! The above is from one of their songs, I think it was called Do It Again.

Anywho so what does this have to do with anything. We’ll everything has to do with something…

I was walking into  a county building the other day and seeing the Country Education Program sign gave me flash backs.

The job hunt has not been going well. A while back I figured I should up grade my web skill that will help finding work, that I could afford. There are more of those …graphic designer with web skills ads…out there than for one that mostly does hard-copy work. So I looked into training. When I first started into the Graphic field I started my training under a country program., Then on to college for a couple of degrees. Now I’m back enrolling in the program once again, &  out of work. The difference this time I am looking to upgrade my skills. Seeing the sign in front of the building, as I am going in for a orientation class sends me back. So much time has past, so much work and effort, and here back to where I started…It could be depressing… depending how you look at it…

Here we go round again…

Anyway I start in Nov.

I have come to terms with us needing to let our condo go. Over the next couple of months, as our home goes up for sale we will be packing, reducing and battening down the hatches to ride out the current life storm …It could be depressing… depending how you look at it…

Here we go round again…

“Anyway this is where that “timing , perspective, who you know” thing comes in…We will be moving closer to the Bay at some point, perhaps sooner… perhaps later.

…This could be a the right path…

Closer to a better sailing area,

Closer to chances to practice on the”Bay and blu water”

Closer to more opportunities for work.. and my current work

Closer to more comfortable temps for LZ in the Summer.

Closer to Nihon and the Launch off site…

Closer to most of the places we usually go…

Closer to Simplifying our lives… so we can leave…

So-o -o  It could be a good thing… depending how you look at it…†

Long ago, near the frontier lived an old man. One day he found his horse missing. It was said that the horse was seen running outside the border of the country. The neighbors came to comfort him for the unfortunate loss. But the old man was unexpectedly calm and said, “It doesn’t matter; it may not be a bad event, on the contrary, I think it can be a good one.”

One night the old man heard some noise of horses and got up to see. To his surprise, he saw another beautiful horse as well as his own. It was clear that his horse had brought a companion home. Hearing the news, the neighbors all came to say congratulation on his good luck. At the greetings, however, the old man was very calm and thoughtful. He added, “It is true that I got a new horse for nothing, but it is hard to say whether it is good or bad. It may be an unlucky thing.”

What he said was testified right. The son of the old man was very fond of the horse brought home, and one day, when he was riding the horse, he fell down from the horseback and terribly hurt in his left leg. Since then he was never able to walk freely. “Nothing serious,” the old man said, “perhaps it is going to be good.”

A year later, many of the youth there were recruited to fight in a war and most of them died. The son of the old man was absolved from the obligation for his disability, so he escaped death.

The old story tells us that good and bad, disaster and happiness can be converting objects to each other sometimes.

Yes, Interestingly enough I was thinking of that very same story as the post unfolded.

My wife has a saying from japan meaning, “bad luck can turn to good luck”
