Contain Yourself


I have to say, my new job has certainly given me a new perspective.

After five years of operating a forklift loading and unloading shipping containers, one spends many an hour and sometimes many a day inside an 8' x 40' dark, windowless steel box.

This is one side of a container you don't see everyday.

What a great way to spend a Monday morning.

What a beautiful January day, I love my job!

Every once in a while, turn life over to see what it looks like from the other side.

  1. Nice office view! Are those doors on the sides of the containers?

  2. Love watching these guys work. Big equipment moving big loads, yet so gentle and perfect when they place stuff. Not how it would go if I tried it 😝

  3. Great if you get paid for stuff you actually like to do. I'd call that a win-win situation ;-)
