After all of these references to work you must be wondering why... Well, it is a fact that I have been looking for work, and would love to have a part-time position to support my quilting/fabric habit as well as some bills that need to be paid. One does need to eat after all.

This reminded me of the book by Studs Terkel "Working" (it is within the above list) published in 1976. It is about People talking about what they do all day and how they feel about what they do...
Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying. Once you become active in something, something happens to you. You get excited and suddenly you realize you count.- Studs Terkel

Anyway, I was looking for the meaning of "Work" because today I found out that the latest position that I went out on an interview for, last week, is looking at an internal candidate. A tad frustrating as I had not known prior to going to the interview... But, I would have done the same in their situation.

A known quantity is much stronger than an unknown quantity.

Still... Ah well, the exercise was a good one... It cleared the mind, It gave me a chuckle,
~♥~ Someday everything will all make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason. ~♥~
Ok, back to working on my projects :) That list of mine is not getting any smaller :)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are enjoying your coffee break :)    

Ciao for now :)
