Silly

I could shine a light into the night.

But why would I want to see the night?

Even when I close my eyes it’s not right.

The dreams. The night terrors. It’s never right.

I could run a mile but never gain an inch.

Just an inch. Half an inch.

I’ll take what I can get.

Yes

I bet on myself and I succeeded.

It feels good.

When I went to Memphis I was in the middle of compliance. If you are in finance or Healthcare you feel my pain. Auditing, compliance, or security operations examination can be excruciating if you run a team. I work in FINTECH (financial technical industry) and it can be hell.

Today I made the deadline.

The deadline was today.

That was closer than I anticipated…

This scotch smells like victory.

Memory eternal

Quick trip to M town for the funeral. It was definitely a sad one, but it was also good to see all my friends from Jackson I haven’t seen in a long time.

It’s a stark reminder of how old my friends and I are getting, and how old our parents are.

It’s never easy when someone passes. It’s very hard when it is your best friend’s mom.
