So, I haven’t been writing in a while. I miss writing on this blog; it helps me think and get my head in order. For months I was in a new city and unemployed, so I had a lot of time on my hands and a desire to collect old refrigeration texts. I started keeping a journal and enjoyed it so much I began this blog. I’ve never been so enthralled by a subject as I was reading about the development of vapor compression systems and their beautiful craftsmanship before manufacturing monopolies consolidated the designs and adulterated the quality and repairability of these common household appliances.
I’ve been working a few months now and although I’m still reading regularly, the writing has fallen by the wayside along with the plans to build my own machines. It’s so easy to work all day doing something you wouldn’t do for free and come home to plop down on the couch, crack open a beer, eat dinner and watch The Daily Show on Hulu before retiring for another day of passionless work. The work lets me see the city and I spend most of the day by myself listening to the radio or podcasts.
If you haven’t noticed, I’m taking a more personal course with this post. Things change. People change. Blogs change. I intend to focus on heating, cooling and energy reclamation topics, but some changes need to take place in my life to make that happen.
