11 years gone

Eleven years, a quarter of my life, was spent proudly wearing the uniform of a National Park Service park ranger. A great many people have done the same thing, living as a seasonal employee and working towards a permanent posting. It was an investment of time that did not end well. Every time I felt that the chasing of experience would pay off it didn’t. To say that I became jaded would be an understatement. The problem is that I miss wearing that uniform, but there is nothing for the sentiment. That career is gone and all that can be done is grieve the loss.

    Cherish the good memories you have. It’s good to glance in the rear view mirror. Just remember you are going forward. You can make new good memories.
