Suddenly my irritation at wasting my days stuck in a cubicle being a wage slave is both insignificant and blindingly important. Perspective. I haz/haz not it.
 
Rare 360-degree Panorama of the Southern Sky

The +Milky Way arches across this rare 360-degree panorama of the night sky above the Paranal platform, home of ESO’s Very Large Telescope. The image was made from 37 individual frames with a total exposure time of about 30 minutes, taken in the early morning hours. The +Moon is just rising and the zodiacal light shines above it, while the Milky Way stretches across the sky opposite the observatory.

The open telescope domes of the world’s most advanced ground-based astronomical observatory are all visible in the image: the four smaller 1.8-metre Auxiliary Telescopes that can be used together in the interferometric mode, and the four giant 8.2-metre Unit Telescopes. To the right in the image and below the arc of the Milky Way, two of our galactic neighbours, the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds, can be seen.

So when one falls zoinkingly sound asleep while sitting at their desk in their cubicle, is it further indication that one should have stayed in bed this morning, or that one really needs to stop working at a desk in a cubicle? Big questions, people. What say you?

Thinking thinky thoughts about the nature of work when working for people who power grab, change the rules every three minutes, and shift blame down the line, and why I have continued to put myself in the line of fire by working for such people over and over again. I have more to offer the world than wage slaving.

I'm experimenting with low-level arrogance - expressing my knowledge about my work with quiet enthusiasm and confidence, rather than with humility bordering on apology. I know what I know, and I'm open to learning more, and to learning new angles of approach. I know that sometimes what I think I know is going to be wrong. Engaging in the conversation with anyone who is also eager to share is always transformational. But I need to be done with apologizing when I kick ass or when I shake someone's assumptions. This work is my jam and I need to play it loud(er) and proud.

Starting off Monday right with a quart of green smoothie magic: kale, pineapple, mango, and banana. Hoping it brings me some mojo.
