it is hard

This  transition has been harder than I thought…
going from urban to rural and
with a few issues on the side,
it has been though.
I do not see the light at the end of the tunnel yet,
but it is coming with a lot of work to be done.
and that is the big thing,
this is not simple,
it is a slow  process
and requires work and  energy.
Do not be fooled,
it is good I  am here,  but
it is work.

who am I now?

Familiar and comfortable
with circuits and code;
especially in the absolutes of zeros and ones.
I find  myself in unfamiliar surroundings,
green fields of soy and cotton.
Coops of dove
and pigeons,
ducks  and  chickens
and goats.
All so unfamiliar
and not so comfortable.
The gardens are wonderful,
I am at home with them,
but such a large area,
how  do I start?
I no longer am who I was…
I am glad

the child

the child,
rests in his mother's  bosom,
safe  secure.
Not so such a place for a man,
tho we may wish to return.
Do I dare say it,
the comfort is  contagious,
we  want more
and not to leave,
but  to  grow  up,
is to leave the comfortable  place.
My new life is  not comfortable
and so I am growing up

and this is  a good  thing.

good news

so the adventure does not begin again,
the second MRI,
shows no tumor,
only things  that should be monitored,
but are of no significant concern!

and so the adventure begins again

the new "thing" they have seen,
must be reconcilled and compared with the old,
then they can tell me is i go on the merry go round,
or not.
i have been through this before,
but it is different,
there is no urgency,
if it is,
they have found it very early
and it leaves me with options.
i am at peace, whatever is coming,
no, i have JOY.
if it is my end,
i am happy,
if it is not, i have much to do
and i am happy.

pins and needles

waiting to see the doctor today
having explain his radiology speak
and his interpretation of it.
