 Talking with a friend today, I spread my arms to their limit and said, "Worry about what you can touch."

Given that I have the short wing span of an unladen European swallow, that means I have little to worry about.

It's easy to have anxiety about the nature of the country and the world but there's little we can do about it other than, say, vote.

What I can control over the coming days, things are good. I've interviewed with two newspapers in different states and will visit one of them next week.

I know plenty of people -- perhaps hundreds -- who have successfully transitioned from journalism into what I call the civilian world. For me, I feel as though I have more to do, more to say, more to write. As folks jump from what they see as the sinking ship of an industry, I scramble to get back on.

I have hope. I am heartened six months after the layoff and reminded of a story from Pema Chodron. She had meditated until she felt great anxiety. She asked her teacher, Chogyam Trungpa, about this and he said it was the Dakini Bliss -- when one reaches a certain level of peace and enlightenment it becomes uncomfortable because it's unknown.

Never will I be enlightened. I'm a son of the Wisconsin Nort'woods.

But hope and heartening cause a certain level of anxiety to which I am unaccustomed.

Still, it's better than poke in the eye with a sharp stick. That's what we say in the Nort'woods.

Have a beautiful weekend.

Peace and hope unto you my brothers and sisters -- with maybe a little Dakini Bliss thrown in.

  1. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR.

  5. Je ne fesait pas confiance aux petits prêts entre particulier. Mais a force de voir plusieurs avis sur Jean Christophe Chateau
    j’ai essayer pour voir s’il était possible d’avoir un prêt d’argent de 10.000€ en toute sincérité avec lui. C’est ainsi que j’ai pris son contacts ensuite je l’ai contacter pour connaître ses conditions. Vu que ses conditions me convenait, j’ai donc fournir tout ce qu’il a de nécessaire pour l’obtention.
    Finalement il m’a accorder le prêt de 10.000€ sans difficulté.
    Alors pour tout ceux qui sont capable d’assumer leur responsabilité veillez sans doute prendre contacte avec ce Mr Jean Christophe Chateau au mail suivant
