T H E E N D O F A N E R A
One week from today - on my 44th birthday -
my 'career' at Aeon will come to a close.
It was not my choice to 'retire', nevertheless,
I will be retired from the company.

Good thing I didn't buy a house like I had planned!

Heading into the Year of Rat without a job,
what kind of year should lay ahead?
Stay in China til March as planned?
Where should I seek work?
Return to Vancouver?
Go to Japan?


Your replies will be be appreciated!

Kuro loves rolling in the sand
probably because she loves taking a hot bath afterwards even more
