So set ...

So set beautiful wreaths, Dika,
about your tresses
plait together the dill shoots
with your tender fingers.
Primed with flowers
the blest spirits of Joy most favor
such occasions:
they shun people who wear no garlands.
-- Sappho, Greek poetess

Quote for living

"There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less." -- G.K. Chesterton

The job search

Sweetie knows now.

She took the news of the impending job loss with courage and strength. She has reminded me daily that She loves me and She thinks a great injustice has been done.

I am trying to maintain a good attitude here. To work as hard as I can up until the day I leave. What point in being childish and sour, to justify the decision that the boss has made?

I have two interviews set up early next week. They sound promising.

I have always tried to be a grateful person. We've never had great luxuries but I can eat beans and rice for dinner and be happy for it. I can go months without buying anything new, just paying our bills. I'm grateful that my parents raised me that way. Now, more than ever, I will be grateful for whatever job I can find.
