If someone were to hand you something today, what do you dream it might be?
While I would love my Monday-morning silver platter to contain a winning lottery ticket, or a round-the-world trip in exchange for my journal of the experience, or the opportunity to direct a blockbuster... let's keep it a bit more realistic. No one from Hollywood is going to call me this morning, that's for sure.
So what's a within-the-boundaries-of-your-life opportunity or gift or event that you know, deep down, you'd be right for?
For me? I've been casting about for a career for, oh, ten years or so, and I've been interested in so many things... heck, even this blog can't find a focus!... that I have never been able to narrow it down and pick one (women's issues advocate, counseling, nursing, English professor, to name a few...).
So now, my storied past as a mediator with the state of Oregon, a hospice volunteer, a nanny, a waitress, a theater geek and a film-set taskmaster, plus my natural love of organization, planning, providing and helping are all coming together. It's the beginning of a new era, folks, with a new job. My first full-time office job and my entre to a world that can encompass all my many interests.
So greetings, politics. Away we go. (And more to come.)
