Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-changes...


It's official. I've resigned my job and am moving on with my life. I gave so much of myself to my work that there was nothing left for me. I plan to change that and am, in fact, doing so as I type.

With the help of some wonderful friends and family members, I have moved from my apartment in Forsyth. Emily and I are happily ensconced in our new digs and enjoying it very much.

I am doing some part-time work on web design and graphic art work and may also be doing some photography. It seems odd to be making money doing the things that I love, but I'm not complaining.

In other news, my son may be coming home for Thanksgiving and if so we are planning a huge family bash. I promise this time there will be pictures.

I have a lot going on right now and will fill you all in on the details when I have more time. Suffice it to say I am healing well and enjoying all that life has to offer.

I'm happy to see you moving in a new direction. Change can sure be difficult but often brings about new health, both mental and physical.

I wondered about that last job. It did seem to be life-sucking. Here's to your life not sucking anymore. Hope Wolf makes it for Thanksgiving, that would be great!

Hugs!!!

brava!
I admire people brave enough to say no more to a life or job that was causing cell-death and mental decay.
Good luck now!
