While working today, YES, I actually DO work, I noticed something unusual as I was looking out of my office window. I noticed two squirrels running up and then down the tree. Curious as to what they were up to, I got out my SPY ware and checked in on them at about 2000 magnification. OK, I really don’t KNOW what the magnification really was, but that’s beside the point.
What I discovered was, they were gathering up what looked like nuts, and then ran back up the tree again. I assume they had a nest there and were storing up for more desperate times. Interesting really, just sitting and watching Nature at work, it gives me a sense of peace.
Watching them, brought a sense of urgency regarding selling my business, and getting ready to start school in the fall. The business is already listed, but I THINK I am going to sell it to ten of my employees who have already come to me and expressed an interest. I am in no rush for a cash deal so I would let them rent with an option to buy the property and the business.
Thinking about this new venture brings a sadness, one in which I am relinquishing control, and the other, not KNOWING what the future will hold. I have been in charge for so long now, it might be difficult for me to relinquish the reins and start anew.
I DO have high hopes for school though, and in a way, I am looking forward to the future. I guess I’ll just have to dive into the unknown and hope for the best. Damn, why did I EVER start watching those damn squirrels?
