The other day the lovely and talented Nikka posted a rather insightful Neil Gaiman quote on her blog. Here is another one of my favorites:
"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself." -Neil Gaiman
So...thanks Neil, you're one smart dude. I can only hope and wish that this happens for me and for all of you, and I think it's a nice sentiment to keep in mind. Especially since I am on a job hunt of epic proportions. Because of the lack of snow up here the resort that I work at has suspended operations except for the weekends, and the restaurant that I work at at nights has shut down. So I have been job hunting like woah! I have had a couple of interviews so I hope they turn into something good. I may have to move back to San Francisco for a few months until the summer tourist crowd gets here. I am trying to remain optimistic about all this because it is kind of exciting to be seeing some changes in my life. It is a little stressful though!
I know so many of you must be going through the same thing, the economy has been rough! Tell me about your job...do you love it? Put up with it because you have other exciting and creative things you do in your spare time? Like the people you work with or not? Are you doing what you thought you would be doing five years ago?
I took these on my way over the pass, doesn't Donner Lake look beautiful?
