Hm, let's see ...
Aside from my creativity, I am devoted entirely to my family. I have a full time job in corporate America to support them. I've been working since I was out of high school, although my art has always been a willing companion. I've been working under the spectre of layoffs for almost a year now, which is kind of nerve wracking (I'll introduce you to my good friend *stress* next time I post), but it does serve to provide focus. I've been actively looking for other corp type work, too, and even in San Francisco, there are fewer opportunities than ever in the past.
Now, however, I feel this shift happening. I'm focusing more on my art, my creativity, and finding my work less fulfilling. There was a time when it was good for me. Problem is, I'm the breadwinner here in this posse, and if I don't have this job, we're gonna have to cut back on cable tv, if you know what I mean.
Anyhoo, I feel as though I'm being bapped around by the cosmos at any rate, and have faith that it'll turn out the way it's gonna turn out.
