My energies have turned inward as I struggle through a difficult few month. The job I took after being laid off last summer was wrong for me on many levels, and most of my energy was consumed trying to overcome that. I had to withdraw from the wit and cynicism of America’s political train wreck its blogification.
After three months in an untenable situation, and during my second unsatisfactory assessment meeting, I asked my supervisor to do me the kindness of firing me for lack of performance. He agreed to do so if I would hang on for two weeks training a replacement. I pondered the irony of the situation only briefly - that I who couldn’t meet the owners expectations would "train" someone - as my interests were best served by getting this new person up and running as quickly as possible.
Last Wednesday I was let go. Now I enter a new untenable state of unemployment. Still, my interest in headlines is diminished, as I enter Phase Two of my Employment Crisis. Regarding this site, expect a slow re-emergence throughout the winter months. I know this will never be the Blog that Shook The World, nor will it gain modest notoriety, but the fact that a few peek in everyday despite my absence is heartening. I’ll hang in there if you do… Thank you.
