Dear J-

So I have been writing a lot about work lately, but work has been a lot of my life, too. To wit: today, back to work in the hottest part of the day, work tomorrow again, and the day after that and the rest of the week too, right? Typical? I can’t help but think that I must have signed on the wrong project, but it’s good to be busy while they make noises about layoffs (what we have been told: they’re cutting a third of the workforce; no doubt some groups will be harder hit than others but it comes down to a number they keep bandying about without justification other than that’s what everyone else gets by with.)

I like to think that I’m indispensable and that it’s a good thing the president knows who I am — by name, by voice, by function. But that’s all window dressing as I keep hurtling on into the unknown: I’ve now given two presentations in three weeks and there’s another coming up in a few days while I travel to Texas for a little hop. I’m stretching myself, and so far so good, nothing seems to be falling apart. I can’t help but keep one eye peeled for the future, though: what comes next in a couple of months?

Mike
