new new new…

New can be scary. It can also be exciting…freeing… I’m feeling the latter at the moment.

I’m in a new position at my old job. The newness of it means shedding a lot of the old work. And it means learning a LOT of new things, and making a whole new set of mistakes. It’s invigorating. I’m lucky to have this chance.

And maybe the newness at work is what made me pick up a decade-old guitar and finally get up the nerve to start taking lessons. Wow, what a feeling! Knowing the notes from piano, but feeling completely lost on the strings. Feeling the pain in the primary fingers of my left hand from the digging metal. It feels wonderful and strange.

New is good. It makes everything seem possible. I’m embracing it…
