Back to Work

“Things are not always right because they are hard, but if they are right, one must not mind if they are also hard.” Winston Churchill.

Two years after my long vacation or adventure, I discover the whole world is changing in ways that I cannot imagine. I cannot imagine the whole world will be interrupted. No Flight, no dine out, no school and no physical face-to-face interaction. Internet and social media are taking up most of our time and we cannot live without them.

The definition of society is re-defined.

Suddenly, I remember my old boss who taught me a lot about how the world works. Certainly, I missed him sometime. But I just do not know what my first sentence would be when I call him.

Nevertheless, I just call him this time.

“Hi, it’s…”

“Yes, I know. I was waiting for your call for so long.”

“Yup, I am so sorry that I left without saying anything about it. I was…” It was a very long story and I hope I can talk about this later.

“Would you like to come back and work with me again?” he asks

“It’s…it’s…it’s such a pleasure!” I am shocking. I am blank. But I am also very excited.

I cannot believe that he will invite me to work with him again after I left so suddenly.

“Things are not always right because they are hard.”

It is Mr. Churchill’s quote and I know what he would like to imply.

“I am still there and see you tomorrow at 9.” he says.
