Does this make sense at all?

I knew these would be random from the start. Quick, dirty, from the hip—post-parallel.

The big idea behind all these little posts has been an experiment in work life parallel. Reflecting on my interests. Exploring ideas. Documenting my experiences. And ultimately discovering what comes after parallel.

Though it hasn’t necessarily happened yet—at least, I don’t think it has, anyway—I feel like the topical randomness, mashed up with the (more or less) daily practice of reflection, will result in the next big idea coalescing into view.

I’ve basically spent the last decade working toward work life parallel. Now that I’ve found it, I feel a sense of anxious relief. “Ah. This is nice. But now what?” Which is to say I feel like I’m going somewhere, but not entirely sure where that is.

Does that make sense at all?

What does happily ever after look like?

When the good guys rode off into the sunset, where did they go next?

These Are The Brakes

These are the brakes that were making all the noise these past couple weeks. The rear pads were down to the feelers.

189,525 miles on Fezzik. Judging by the cleanliness of the threads on the guide bolt…

I’m gonna assume the calipers have never been removed, meaning these are likely the original rotors from 1998.
