I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.
I’ve been thinking for awhile now that this blog has played out. I had an idea that I’d end it on a triumphant note with a job announcement long before this. The phoenix would arise from the flames. The boxcarkids would move outside the box! But that hasn’t happened and I’m certain that you are all getting just as bored and impatient as I am with this endless saga of the tedium of unemployed life. I’m losing my voice – running out of things to say, saying things that I’ve said before. Like the trailer, the blog seems to be slowly disintegrating! So, for now I’m ending it. Thanks to my loyal readers for sticking with us this long and especially thank you to all those readers who have supported us with compassionate advice and kind words! I have appreciated it. If anything major – good or bad – happens I will add a post, or arrange to have one added, so that perhaps someday you’ll get a sense of where we ended up! Take care.
