And the phone rang. A call I'd been told to expect for the last several months. I'd forgotten about it, but as soon as the person told me where she was calling from, I knew.
Was I available for work? Hey, I JUST became available, I'm hot off the press. The timing struck me funny and since it was all spontaneous, I was unguarded in my conversation.
I'd been recommended by a friend. She wanted to know about my background, and my skills. And so ensued a very pleasant chat with a woman I felt an instant connection with. She used to be a consultant, she 'got' what I told her about my work. I've sent her my entire life story, I'm chatty like that. Ok, not quite my entire life story, but hopefully enough to answer her questions and assure her that I am more than capable for the project.
So we'll see. I would love to keep something percolating. Nothing full-time. And I'm not in a hurry. I was looking forward to thinking I was retiring.
But that proverbial door that closed may have allowed the other one to open. Time will tell...
