I am ashamed by the amount of time that has passed since my last journal entry!
Well, since September of 2008 I have adopted a juvenile Australian Cattle Dog! His name is Coleman and he is an amazingly good-natured, sentient being with the innocence that only a young, trusting mind can have. We had a rough start, because of m ineptitude as a human with unrealistic emotional expectations. Once I recognized him for the individual he is, I stopped wishing he was another dog and began to rejoice in whom he is.
I haven't been drawing or painting at all these past 2 years! Doodles, yes, notebooks & class notes full of doodles in the margins, but no planed out, deliberately creations. Instead, I have taken up digital photography & been learning when I can about enhancements and the various options of my Olympus E-500. I have much to upload!
Oh-and I graduated!!! (with honors, I might add) After taking a much-needed vacation to visit Rick & Larry, my close friends whom started me on my educational journey by offering to pay for community college classes instead of giving me a raise when I asked...they know the enormity of what the had started, that a lifetime gift of education is worth so much more than a 2$ raise...
Job hunting now, prospects looks positive for one facility. Other places, which I admire, are offering wages I received back at Discount Pet Clinic in 2005!
