A colleague from the past
Met Mahnia after many many moons since we had worked together. Funnily enough, most of our discussions were around time spent while NOT working. She is in a phase where she is taking time off from her job. Having gone thru that three times in life – and my family will argue the best three times of our lives – we talked a lot about the importance of taking “time outs” in life and pursuing very different goals. And eventually recognizing the mortaility of life – on other words, the finiteness of our life.
As we said this evening – Most of us do not wake up realizing n=n-1 now and live the rest of the day as if n is not a finite number.
I took some tips from her long hiking and long biking trips. Someday, I am sure I will get into those too.
It was great to meet an old colleague and a great human being!!
