    A mysterious job title

    A hello from Florida.

    It is funny that I don't know what my position is called. Got Master degree in planning, few classes left to receive Master in Landscape Architecture. Job title on timesheet is site planner, but they all introduce me as a landscape architect. Mostly work on community design and sometimes landscape details. Never deal with code or other paper works. So, I am neither a planner nor a landscape designer. I am somewhere in between......
    Work hard, play hard.
    Listen carefully, see broadly.
    Good people, great environment, wonderful life.

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!!

    Don't let the Man label you!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Welcome! Your a paper pusher like so many of us
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

I have so many wonderful memories in Denver except the terribly bad interview experience with the county.... Heehee...
    Was that before the Taj Mahal ?

    Hello from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
