Perfect Timing

August 8, 2005


Thursday was my first farewell lunch at Adobe. (I was delighted that Alex Stepanov came.)

Friday was my second farewell lunch and my last day at work. I was surprised at how difficult it was to walk through employee parking for the last time. It felt like graduating from high school — you know it’s a good thing, but it’s a little scary as well because you’re leaving the familiar for the unfamiliar.

Tomorrow we leave for Cabo San Lucas for a week! No work, no phone, no email, no blogging, no church — just goofing off. (…Well, Kay & I hope to think, pray, talk and dream a lot about church direction.)

After we get back, I’ll have a few days at home before starting work at Apple.

Kay booked this vacation a year ago when I had no job and we had no income, saying we could cancel it if we had to. Could it have been timed any better?

++ Thank you so much. Sorry for doubting. Love you. ++

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  4. Hey John! Contrats on the “Offer!!!!” I love the video.. you have inspired me to at least think about doing a little video as I take a huge step forward in my relationship with Shannon.. I’m moving to Denver in 18 Days and Counting!!!!! I’ll still be doing my CRM gig, but based out there!! anyway, i’m sorry to say I won’t be able to make the drive from Denver to Soliton, its just a little farther to drive and i don’t have a Prius getting 580+ miles per tank..
