To My Good Friend, Bill

It’s been less than 24 hours since I’d learned of your leaving for Boulder, CO… and I’m a mess. I was really hoping (crossing my fingers) that I wouldn’t get this way. But, my emotions have gotten the better of me this morning… and I’m already feeling the potential loss.

I really don’t want you to leave. I really don’t. Yet, you’ve been saying this for years… that you would find a better opportunity… find something more suited to your needs… find a better career that didn’t steam-roll you into submission with its corn-rows of cubicles and fluorescent lights. I’ve known this for ages.

The Place for Politics

Now, as an addendum to my previous Facebook post that went WAY out of control…

I’ve been unemployed for 6+ months. I have sent out more resume’s & applications than I can count on my hands and feet. There is not a day that goes by that I’m not crossing my fingers that my resume/application will land in the hand of someone who is willing to take a chance on me… and say “Yeah! This this is the guy for us!”

Ah, Hell...

Ah, Hell…

Well, it’s been a pretty good run up until now…

Over the past 8 months, I’ve been able to enjoy doing some things that through the kindness of my compatriots, I probably wouldn’t have the time for: Assistant Direct a new play, mastering the lighting system at the Coralville Center for Performing Arts for “Guys and Dolls“, get more involved in the promotion of my “Comics In Action” improv troupe, do some freelance WordPress work and take some relaxing, although overly heated, Iowa afternoons in a friends pool.
