A Tentative Start

It has taken a long time getting to this place... Actually putting down thoughts about where I am and where I'm going. The events of the past year, closing my department and forcing me to look for work elsewhere have been very stressful even when I don't show it!! I have been forced to examine certain aspects of my external persona... something I am uncomfortable with. And to face facts... Firstly, I have come to admit openly (before only to myself) that I find Computer Graphics boring. It wasn't always that way, but it sure is now.

I had this epiphany only recently while on a working tour of printing plants in Kiryat Malachi. Suddenly it hit me... this is soooo boring I want something else!!! The what, of course, has been percolating for a long time. I love to cook and bake. I collect recipes and cookbooks. I read cookbooks before going to bed at night. I subscribe to recipe sites online. I think I'm hooked. But what can I do with this?

It is definitely scary to think of going it on my own and leaving the security of a steady paying job. The prospects, however, are tantalizing and exciting at the same time. Can I do this? Yes!! Will it be hard? You bet!! Not the least I will have to contend with criticism of family and friends who will think this is just nuts...

But... I love to bake especially bread and will be posting recipes here. I would also appreciate getting tips and recipes. Right now I'm checking out cooking and baking schools around the country and planning for next year. I'll keep you posted.
