Rumors in my mind...

Today has been very busy. I realized it from the rumors I heard since I wake up.
Plenty of perspectives, ideas, dichotomies: ying and yang, good and bad, heaven and hell, antinomies, synesthesies...

Almost everything came to my mind.

But after a nice dinner I realize, no matter what happens and you don't have to be Scarlett O'Hara to say that "After all, tomorrow is another day!".

There will always be a Sun shining up in the sky and lighting my way... The sky may be clean, rainy, cloudy, overcast... maybe even more "blue"... whatever, who cares: Sun will always be Sun.

It's a matter of fact.

For me it's a state of mind; it's like throwing your heart through the hurdle; not only trying harder: but succeeding better!

And for the moment it's enough for me.

Awakening in Finland

6.30: alarm is ringing, where am I? Turku, Finland. Yes, now I remember ;-) Outside the sky is black as tar pitch and temperature is -5°C, but this morning I've something different to do... No delays, let's go for it! I take the lift to the last floor, where the Finnish Sauna is located and after a cold shower, you can spend a some time in a warm room (+90°C), ladling some water from a bowl onto some hot cobblestones. Steam puffs starts wrapping you like a warm soft blanket: the relaxing part starts. After 5-10 min spent in this room, you must find your way out; but as long as you get out, Finnish tradition advices you another cold shower, and now the most incredible part... Only with a towel around your hips, barefoot, you can step out onto the balcony and feel the snow melting under your feet, the icy air starts shaking you from the bones. Only a minute or a few more and you feel completely restored, still bringing the warm inside you're ready to start facing the dawn of a new day. You can feel far echoes of Viking's strength...

Walking on SUN-SHINE

Today is my first year @Sun!
I can sharply remember the good old college days (and nights!!!) spent in front of VT100 terminals: compiling (...hmmm, to be sincere: mostly debugging!!! :-( ) my first C programs, with K&R as Bible, and dreaming to be a "System Manager", dreaming to join SUN. And what's happened?
Well, a lot of interesting things: I've become that System Manager and maybe I've even moved some steps forward ("if" and "how far", you will decide ;-) ). But not exactly all that I was dreaming of became true, you know, it's Life :-) Joys and sorrows in-between are all steps of the same path. While, all of a sudden...

November, 13th 2006: hired by SUN! \*GREAT\*!!!

The thing is that I'm so very happy because of this great opportunity that was given to me.
I'm not making a balance, it would be clearly in favor of SUN.
It was not simple, because of the challenging activities.
It was not trivial, sometimes I felt discouraged.
It was not even easy, since I did not disliked my previous jobs.

But then what makes those "things" such a great experience? I like thinking it was all up to the wonderful people with whom I exchanged experiences, ideas, thoughts, built relationships.
Working with them "under the SUN", I always felt ready to take harder challenges, to dare something more... I felt like I'll never walk alone.

So, thank you very much, to every colleague/people I met.
