As appears to be cus­tom­ary here on cavok, I’ve tak­en an extend­ed break from writ­ing..

Part­ly this is because I have a few posts backed up in the edit­ing process, and most­ly because I feel com­plete­ly over­whelmed with the life I’ve cho­sen to date. Some­how, I haven’t learned the appro­pri­ate lessons to cre­ate bal­ance an con­sis­ten­cy in my life. As I get old­er, my resilience from the effects of dis­ar­ray is steadi­ly decreas­ing.

My life has always been an exer­cise in brinks­man­ship, con­stant­ly jug­gling new projects, com­mit­ments and oblig­a­tions. This has been exac­er­bat­ed by my cho­sen pro­fes­sion over the last decade and though I’ve fre­quent­ly com­plained about it, I’ve failed to act upon the knowl­edge to fix the prob­lem with any sort if plan in hand.

With the end of my tenth drilling sea­son approach­ing, I’m going on record now to com­mit to mak­ing that change effec­tive imme­di­ate­ly by remov­ing myself from the full time rota­tion in the field. As I tran­si­tion to in-town work, I may occa­sion­al­ly pick up work here to achieve par­tic­u­lar goals with the inten­tion to com­plete­ly extri­cate myself from the direc­tion­al drilling world over the com­ing year.

With that in mind, over the next few weeks I will work on iden­ti­fy­ing areas to sim­pli­fy my life and remove the clut­ter that has been cloud­ing my cre­ativ­i­ty and dilut­ing the efforts I’ve put in to sev­er­al recent projects. I will com­mit to post­ing my thoughts on the sub­ject and the new plan by end of month.

Com­menc­ing in mid-April I will be active­ly seek­ing Cal­gary based, short or long term con­tract work on a tech­nol­o­gy or pho­tog­ra­phy relat­ed project and I would great­ly appre­ci­ate any leads in that respect.

For a sum­ma­ry of my qual­i­fi­ca­tions and areas of exper­tise, please see my LinkedIn pro­file here.

As always, I appre­ci­ate those if you who still take the time to check in here once in a while. Thank you all for your sup­port.
