As I a transition into my new job and life I find myself reflecting a lot about where I have been and what I have done in then past. As of this minute I am sitting outside our camp trailer that is resting at the trail head of the Warner mountain wilderness. The juxtaposition of my past career as a research scientist and my current career as a sheep rancher (which is a glorified way of saying sheep herder) could not be more stark in my estimation but somehow it feels right.
As with any major change in life whether it be getting married (done that), starting a family (done that), or a career change (and check), there is a learning curve that can be intimidating. However, after processing some of the angst that I have been having about my new career I have noticed that this change has reinvigorated in me in many ways. So with that being said I still have a huge task ahead of me including the mastering of a new language and understanding the ins and outs of the sheep business. Wish me luck and I will be checking in as I have time.
