My putative arts job has evaporated. I feel strangely unconflicted. Driving to Scapoose every day was a pain in the neck. I now have a whole summer to look forward to again, and I am truly excited about that. Was it worth doing, even for 2 weeks? Well, yeah. I can now say with confidence that if there comes up something that I really really want to happen, I can probably swing it. I just gotta careful about choosing the right things.
