That and This

One thing I can never claim: boredom.

Rode the Light Rail downtown tonight to survey the venue for my mother-in-law's memorial. Can't really believe that this is what engages me at the moment -- don't people you love live forever? (Well. I've been disabused of that notion time and again. [And haven't we all....])

People were queuing up for a night at the theatre while we moved from space to space, assessing room size, prep space, tables, etc. Very surreal: a party atmosphere amidst our somber mission, ushers urging programs on us, requesting tickets.

The only ticket I possess is for OUT.

Long days at the Little Glass Factory.
Studio Hijinx.
The conversation today ranged from Amazing Grace to X-Rated.
Go figure.
A to X.
And our new temporary person is an angel.
Thank you, Universe!

Oh -- and have I mentioned -- I love my job?
If you've ever been so lucky as to work at a job you love, then you understand this.

If not, I wish you the same good fortune.


  1. My oldest son is an hotel manager, and he just LOVES going into work each morning! I don't think it's that common.

  2. Well, it's a blessing in that it's mutual. Your job loves you too. Isn't that cool?

  3. It's nice to hear that someone loves their job -- I imagine that all you're going through right now is somewhat surreal -- I wish you much strength onward.

  4. Loving one's job makes all the difference in the world. Mostly, I have hated the idiot managers and bosses, not the job itself. Sounds as if yours is good all the way around.
