I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.

  1. Even though my army time I dealt with several code structures, this one was too cryptic for me. I liked it anyway because it gives me food for thought and it soaks up the wine.

    1. It is difficult to tell the whole story in a Haiku – perhaps I should have used a longer form.

      I work in a small team of five and have two managers who job share, one on 4 days and the other 3 days a week. Yesterday was their last day with the team as they move into new roles. I only found out they were leaving on Monday and haven’t really had much time to process it all and am understandably upset. I am very fond of both of them and will miss them dearly. I have had so many managers over the years and I will bounce back, but at the moment I am feeling a little damaged.

  2. Changes are always hard but inevitably happen whether we like them or not. In my sixth decade I’m just starting to accept that all things come to an end. I can empathize with your situation as my time with my work group is coming to an end. My manager found out when I told her that I was informed that my position is moving to another part of the organization. No one communicates well any more.

    1. I will adapt and survive, heavens, I have been continuously employed since 1989. I do invest in my colleagues though and it is always sad to see them move on.
