I relocated to Morelia, Mexico on Tuesday of this week for an extended stay . . .
My intended stay is six months or longer.
Other than my physical address my contact information remains the same. Without this notice, you wouldn’t know that I have moved 1,740.7 miles south from an elevation of 500 to 6,100 ft from Nashville, TN, the city I have called home since 1963. Interestingly, and beyond my awareness, the move from Music City has landed me in Centro Historico in the heart of The City of Music.

The planned first posts include the following topics and, of course, any adventures the days may bring.

Workplace Hidden Opportunities is a book in progress about the global workplace and its underlying physical assets. I realized that without a perspective and agenda beyond the United States, which I love and feel some immediate concern, my voice would be myopic and shackled. Read more soon . . .
My sense is the notion of nation states and superpowers has reached their eclipse. Like the dinosaur, there can be a long tail to extinction. HiddenOpps, through its interviews, is exposing that we have arrived at the tipping point on our way to a new world order. Read more soon . . .
The conclusion of my seventh decade of this life was at Thanksgiving 2017. Sitting on soul purpose or some ill-defined itch without a scratch sucks energy and depletes life essence in often imperceptible ways. The age of a child prodigy (Mozart) or late bloomer (Lincoln) is both relevant and irrelevant. Read more soon . . .
Mike Dunham is a former software development business associate who has been a resident of Morelia for the last several years. He has graciously offered to help me navigate the transition. Last night he introduced me to a group of his friends in the jazz community
Greetings from Morelia!
Saludos desde Morelia!
PS My introduction to and immersion in el español commenced this week.
