Goings On

Posting daily has not been an option of late. My venture into temping was short-lived; three days. It was good to have done it, and good to know I do still have some very marketable skills, but other local opportunities called and I was more than thrilled to respond to those and leave that horrid, horrid man behind. Three days was more than enough to realize that his misery is contagious and to understand in retrospect some of the anxiety I saw in the eyes of those compelled to share his space every day.

Then, I got a twenty-five word email a few days ago that still has me in shock. It was the greatest possible vote of confidence any writer could ever dream of receiving. I was not expecting it and the door it offered to open was one I'd envisioned only in my dreams. The outcome is certainly not a certainty, but what it really, really said can never be minimized or discounted!

But, to make sure life stays in balance, a few very important friends and I got an odd message regarding something we're working on that has left us all scratching our heads. It seemed to be in such contrast to prior information and, for the time being at least, is somewhat unsettling.

More later!

I don't know what's going on, but I'm prepared to ride through the storm...don't have a choice...I think it's a test to see how we'll react.
