As I was speaking with Rosa last night about my pursuit, and yes, she is also at a different point in life, she reminded me that seeking out work in Italy or elsewhere may not be easy and I do understand that. I also reminded her that I have been able to weather many storms and manage many bumps in the road over my lifetime. I also reminded her that I can continue with my business from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world as was proven out this past summer, and that tutoring and/or teaching English as a Foreign Language is within my grasp now. It may take time, but it will happen. More importantly, if I don’t take a chance now, then when? Now, when the new year, yes, I know still two months away, is upon us and who knows, what it will bring, with the craziness in this country and the world, I am not tied down to a state, a city, a company, and nothing is really holding me back here in America. You only live once and I will live it. I am willing to give it that shot, both personally and professionally.
It does not matter where I live and how I live as long as I am happy. Isn’t that what it says in the US Constitution, the pursuit of happiness. Well, I am on that pursuit, and I am the happiest when I have been with her and each time, we are together, it is a test and while nothing is perfect and it should not be, we enjoy each other’s company. Yes, and while it was a shorter amount of time, this summer proved it is possible and I am only looking for a chance to move forward in our relationship. She is, always, on my mind and in a month’s time, we will be together again.
For this week however, I am off to the Big Apple for a conference and trade show at the Jacob Javits Center and also a little personal business including a visit with an uncle of mine, visiting my grandparent’s gravesite and for the fun of it, hitting the 72nd Hard Rock, up near Yankee Stadium. Funny, I have never been to Yankee Stadium, even though I lived in New York City for many years of my life, and it should a little quiet up there now that the Yankees have been eliminated from the playoffs, but the pursuit of happiness includes the Hard Rock experience, so I will continue to add to my collection. Yes, I have been to the one at Times Square. Next week this time off to Europe for the month of November and a part of December, for business and more travel adventures I will be excited to share with you. The routine of packing and unpacking continues. What packing ideas do you have to share?
Until next week, thank you for your support of my crazy little world and of my small business. It is truly appreciated, and as always, I am interested in your thoughts, comments, questions and adding to the discourse is always appreciated be in on the site itself or on Facebook, Twitter or wherever you read this.
