I don’t know if I mentioned the ducks and geese that reside out by the lake near current place of employ but for most of the summer, they have been my buddies. I’d sit outside near the water and watch them frolic and play and honk and squeak. They were company for me when I didn’t have any and I looked forward to sitting outside.
Since it’s grown a tad colder, I haven’t been sitting outside as much but still look at the ducks and geese through the many picture windows surrounding our building.
I find it an interesting synchronicity that as I am set to take my leave from CPOE, the ducks and geese have been relocated to another pond. They sent a memo out letting us know that the powers that be decided to move the birds to a different body of water since they were a bit too raucous for the area. Duck poo and the occasional sqawking aside, I rather liked them but that’s just me.
And so, the only other thing I liked at CPOE has been moved away and I found the timing of it to be very interesting. As well as this other event: I loaned my woo-woo buddy a couple books a month or so ago and hadn’t seen them back. I didn’t want to tip my hand by asking for them back and so the other night I decided that I would just leave and let her have the books. Today, out of the blue, she came over and gave me the books back (without my asking for them) and I had to laugh. That dag Universe – it always knows how to make me smile. Thus, all ties I have had with this CPOE are more or less severed (well, not officially. Just waiting on a few more bits of info to be nailed down.)
I just thought it was interesting that it all comes full circle.
