The sun does not shine past the trees.
The ground is dark, the domain of night.
And we stand in that darkness, looking up,
hungry for a glimpse of light.
Light that never comes, until the wind blows.
Branches sway and bend, and the long night gives way
to an oh too brief dawn.
Then the wind moves on, the branches grow still.
Endless night returns and we return to our vigil,
waiting for a glimpse of light.

Well, it's been an interesting week here, gentle readers.
Last Sunday I was hired at Motel 6 for a front desk position working the night shift. The hours were good and the money didn't seem bad.
Until I got there and realized just how much gatekeeping a person was expected to do. For the cash they were paying it was entirely too much.
So I said goodbye to Motel 6, which I'm not too upset about. A friend of mine put it best: "You're just too old to deal with bullshit jobs that you don't want."
He nailed it in one.
Anyway, since I walked away from a paying gig, I won't be getting any more unemployment which is a relief because, really? I only want to work about four days a week anyway.
The guy who bought my old job is hiring me to cover the shop while he goes out of town on weekends, to shows and such. So this coming weekend I'll get two days pay and then another day's pay the week after that and then a few more weekends in March and possibly a week in April.
So, it's not like I'm going to starve.
And one of the guys who opened a new shop on the other side of town has made overtures to me, that he might be interested in hiring me during the week. Alternately, if I was interested in buying into the shop, I could do that too.
So, stuff is happening. Forward motion is maintained.
What more can you ask for? Right?
