Searching For A Word

For the past seven weeks I have been searching for a word.

I don’t think that searching is the right word in this case.  Doesn’t quite get my point across.

No, I’ve been hunting for a word.  A single word.  One word that put everything else in my life on hold.  One word that made falling asleep a living nightmare and waking up like a sweat drenched summers day.  I have spent long moments sitting staring out the window, racking my brain over the right way to say it.  This single word has been so elusive from me that I’ve felt like I’m lost in a forest and forgotten where I wanted to go.  I’ve spent a lot of time sitting and looking up at the sky.

Well no more.  I found that word cowering in a dark dusty dank corner of my mind and I dragged it kicking and screaming like a five year old throwing a tantrum and thrust it into the air high above my head.  Just like He-man, with my arm holding that word high above my head, I shouted “By the power of Gray Skull!” and lightning coarsed through my body.  It was electrifying!

The word that I’ve been hunting for?  It’s name is tech.  Yes, tech.  TECH!

I’ve sat in countless meetings in the past four weeks bantering about technology this and technology that.  I’ve reviewed a few patents and debated the finer points of intellectual property law with some of the best and brightest.  My life has been consumed by technology and everything tech and that overused overhyped buzz word is the one that will bring so much clarity to a group of people who need it so badly.

It has been a battle of epic proportions and I’m glad to see it done.  The thinking is done, now it’s time to execute.  Sniper style.
