“Ah! well away! Seasons flower and fade.” Lord Alfred Tennyson
Quite succinctly stated. Unfortunately, most people do not watch the change of seasons with detachment nor are they poets at heart (which is unfortunate as poetry can do so much good to a person’s heart). I, for a fact, can become slightly attached to a certain era or time period in my life. That is why, with deep sadness, I have to announce that Rainy Shukla, my teammate and close friend, is no longer sharing the DADANCO hallways with us, having left us for the glories promised by the School of Darden in Virginia. Well, good luck Rainy! Don’t you dare replace me with another exotic friend.
That season has flowered and faded. A new season began with a welcome addition- Steven Lamica.
Please allow me to introduce you to our new teammate!
A few years back, Steve was born and raised in New Windsor, downstate NY.
In 2009, he left Orange County Community College in Middletown, NY, with an Associate’s degree in Engineering and jumped into an engineering internship at USMA West Point. There he cleverly designed and tested remote initiation systems for an army/air force project.
In 2012, Steve graduated from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of Troy, NY, with a B.S & M. Engineering in Mechanical Engineering.
One week after graduation he sailed into our offices and began his first full time job as an applications engineer. He currently resides in Chicopee, MA, where he continues to enjoy his hobbies: playing bass in a rock band, working out, biking, hiking, cooking, reading and playing video games.
This welcome addition to our staff is bright eyed and cheerful and we look forward to many changes and seasons together.
As I like to end all my blurbs on a hopeful and positive note, let me share a novel idea that clearly came out of mouth of an apparent optimist, Albert Camus, “Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower”.
As we all know, fresh autumn is right around the corner.
Seasons change. Things change.
Let’s not forget that every stage has its own unique flavor and delight.
And if all else fails, start looking for flowers.
