El Dave’s “Unbearable Likeness of Being,” Demands Handshaking in Prague

According to Milan Kundera, “being” is full of “unbearable lightness” because each of us has only one life to live: “Einmal ist keinmal” (“once is nonce”, i.e., “what happened once might as well have never happened at all”). Having a Finnish wife and spanish ancestry allows for sentimental associations across the Atlantic. I proposed to Heidi in Alicante, Spain and we had our Church wedding in Finland and a honeymoon in Tallin, Estonia. Years later, I am long overdue an excursion.

That said, “Six degrees from Dave” will be in brief hiatus as I make my trek to the Czech Republic this morning until I arrive Tuesday morning in Prague. The focus of my quest is to experience the shaking of hands and sharing of international sourcing best practices, not to mention much ado to do with food and merriment with third and second degree Linkedin connections among fellow recruiters in Eastern Europe.

I look forward to the adventures ahead, and some wild game feasts to be had. In between each experience, I look forward to sharing photos with you and tell a story.

I take relationships seriously, and now I take that passion with a collection of Franz Kafka in hand and spreadsheets to carry me through the next fourteen hours of flight time.
