I found out yesterday that my day job is coming to an end. At the end of the month, I'll be saying goodbye to my friends at the Medical Post. I have been working with them, on a freelance basis, for eight years. It's going to be difficult. The loss of income, yes...but the loss of my colleagues who have also become friends, is even more difficult. But -- downsizing respects no one.
Is this a push from the cosmos to go in a new direction? I don't know. Yet. But I am tightening my belt, and doing what can be done immediately, which is to focus on my art and put more of it out into the world. It is, after all, my goal: to be a full-time artist. I just didn't think it would happen so soon. So, while I'm looking around for other editorial jobs, I'm doubling my effors, creating more and listing new work.
