Thoughts on moving

As one winds up one portion of their life and prepares to move on to the next some intersting thoughts and feelings come into play. I have already commented on the liberating feeling of letting go of physical stuff (though I still have a bunch). Even more interesting is the sense of release and regret as I let go of responsibilities that I have had. Part of the departure process has been to walk others through portions of my job and explain how and what I have been doing for the last six years. There have been things that I was more than happy to let go of, and others that I kind of feel like I will miss.

I am ready for the new challenges and experiences that await me. I must admit that moving to a state job in Mississippi is the cause of a slight amount of trepidation. That state's economy is going to be in the crapper for a while and there probably will not be much money for anything other than rebuilding. This is not to suggest that I do not believe that rebuilding should not have the priority, it should, I just mean that the position I am going to is slightly less secure than it was three weeks ago.

The very positive response I got on the job market this summer suggests that I should not have much to worry about if some sort of problem arises at Ole Miss.
