I dropped into 680 News yesterday, a planned brief visit, the first one since I left its employ two and a half months ago.
I felt like a visitor, which, of course, I now am. My 10 year tenure there didn’t leave me with any sense of ownership about the place. Only about the people. Not that I own them! But my joy at seeing them was as full and genuine as it could be while I felt like the newsroom was a relic of my past.
And it was good!
This is exactly what I wanted. I’m spending my days the way I envisioned them, with lots of variety and autonomy. I’m detached from the radio station insomuch as I don’t feel I’m missing anything except the people whom I’ve grown to love. This weekend I’m with one of those favourite people whom I miss the most, getting caught up and relaxing.
Imagine life unfolding as it should, as it was planned. I feel very fortunate indeed.
