Two Months Left

I have two months left on my contract. My client wants to renew my contract but there’s the possibility of a leveraged buyout which could stall proceedings. Did this company not learn anything from the last LBO which resulted in a bankruptcy filing seven years later?

If my contract is not renewed I’ll have some decisions to make. I’m not keen on another job search but I’m not sure I want to retire. Do I want to stay in Denver? The last few weeks I’ve been searching online for homes for sale in Santa Fe. I’m not sure I want to move to a small city being a single gay man. What will dating be like in a town where many of the residents only live there part time?

All of these questions and decision will disappear with a new contract which may be the best thing for now. I’d like to ride this cash cow for a few more years. I’d rather quit working on my terms than having the decision made for me. We’ll see what happens.

I worked in my yard for six hours today. I could spend another week in the yard and still have things to do. Have you ever transplanted bamboo?

I decided to have a relaxing soak in the tub for a while before dinner. As soon as I get settled in my tranquility is interrupted by purring. I open my eyes to see this:
He walked around the tub for a few minutes and wandered off. Or so I thought. When I tried to get out of the tub I found this:
Seriously? There’s nothing like a trip to the ER after slipping on a granite floor with a wet foot. A few drops of bath water was the only motivation needed to get Ferdinand to move. Crisis averted.

It was a quiet night on the local art scene. Only two galleries had openings. The hit of the night was Sue Simon’s presentation of new works at Spark Gallery. Sue’s paintings combine abstraction with science and mathematics. Her new works concentrate on numbers. Her paintings are delightful and well crafted. This exhibition did not disappoint. Here are a few of my favorites:

Some Numbers Drive You Crazy, acrylic on panel
Pi is an Infinitely Long Series of Numbers, acrylic on panel
Zero, acrylic on panel
Some Numbers Keep You Calm, acrylic on panel
Uncountable Infinity, acrylic on panel (just one panel of a six panel painting)
