The reason I’m madly excited about this, is that it allows me to work! Yeah, I know that seems rather crazy. Now that I’m gainfully unemployed, why would I want to work, let alone be pleased about it? It’s a long story, made of equal parts ingrained work ethic, sense of accomplishment and actually doing work I thoroughly enjoy. I’m not getting paid for it so I’d jolly well better like it.
All of this has made for an excellent day. It started with a two-hour walk with the dogs up the Awesome Trail this morning, followed by an hour walk on the Genoa Bay trail this afternoon, interrupted by a good spurt of editing.
