Decisions, decisions

Well, 24 hours after my unexpected departure from Amazon, things are looking pretty good. I’ve been talking (generic term for communications via telephone, email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, blog, and old-fashioned face-to-face speech) with many people, and there are a number of interesting prospects on the horizon. I’m still trying to decide what I want to do and when I want to do it. Should I plunge straight in, or take a break and then hope that the opportunities will still be there? Take a vacation? (I can’t remember the last one.) Full-time or consulting? Write a book? Stay in Seattle, or move?
(I’m irresistibly reminded of the lyrics from the Pet Shop Boys’ “West End Girls”:

Too many shadows, whispering voices
Faces on posters, too many choices
If, when, why, what, how much have you got
Have you got it do you get it
If so how often
Which do you choose
A hard or soft option
(How much do you need)

Too many choices. I hope that’s not an illusion….)
Never mind; there’s no rush. In the meantime, thanks to all who have wished me well, requested my résumé (an interim version of which is here), and asked to stay in contact. If you’re in Seattle, drop me a line and we’ll have coffee. (I tend to hang out at the Starbucks by Union Station; they know exactly how I like my quad espresso macchiato with extra non-fat foam.)
