tanyas, mailart and jobs
i am so enjoying listening to the be good tanyas. and aren't they pretty?! i love the colors in this photo too. i don't know who took it, so i'm sorry for not giving credit.
i received this lovely and unexpected postcard from mail artist frips. frips' cat disappeared for almost 8 months and then came back! here is a pic of the cutie after just having returned (from another blog of frips'). frips also sent me an add and pass little book. i'm looking forward to surprising someone with it and can't wait to get a copy of the book back when it's full.
i think if i was a postal carrier it would be so hard not to keep the beautiful mailart going around. at the very least, it would take me forever to deliver the mail cuz i'd have to appreciate the mailart before delivering it.
speaking of other jobs...i am so tired, in body and spirit, of sitting in front of a computer all day. it's time to find something else. it is so hard to leave the security/familiarity of my job, especially when i have no clear job destination in sight. keri frequently writes (in various ways) about not taking the safe route in life. god it's so hard to leave the safety. but the reasons to leave it just keep piling up, and i can't avoid them much longer. there are, and have been, good reasons to keep my current job. but at this point, the reasons to leave are outweighing the reasons to stay. when i think about leaving the security/familiarity, half of the time i feel like i can't breathe, and the other half i feel excited and restless.
