Having an Indiana Jones moment, I think
Which movie is this scene in? I can’t remember.
Indiana Jones has gone through a gauntlet of cunning traps and ends up at a crevasse where he needs to make a leap of faith, as the bridge he needs to cross is invisible.
He consults his little diary and sees a diagram of someone walking confidently out into mid-air and is heartened.
He is no fool though, is Indie, so he takes a handful of dirt and throws it over the bridge and – hey – the bridge sort of appears. And off he steps…
I am standing at such a crevasse.
I am having a career break! *uncharacteristic excited yelp* For the next YEAR I will get up in the morning, actually EAT my breakfast, and think: I don’t think I’ll go into work today.
There are literally HOURS of working time left before I step out onto the invisible bridge of A VOID and see if there is life beyond work.
There will be, I suspect.
Mine, I suspect, Galatians 2 verse 20 notwithstanding.
I love my job. It is really fun and it doesn’t involve phones. I will miss it, while at the same time I suspect the year will go in too quickly. It will be nice to hang out with the children and read them more books.
I have all kinds of unrealistic plans. Well, I have all kinds of plans – all of which are realistic in isolation – but one year and too many targets… it will be interesting (for me anyway) to see what I actually do…
Will I just eat curry and watch CSI on loop?
Will I write 3000 words a week and have a novel by the time I turn 40?
Will I lose weight, get fit and come to be known as “The Whippet”?
Will I have an efficiently run household with laminate signs everywhere detailing rules and procedures?
So, consider this post a handful of dirt over an invisible bridge.
When I step out, I may turn out to be like a cartoon character who shoots off into nothingness, pedals furiously and plummets.
At least it’ll be something to blog about.
