The soul has greater need of the ideal than the real for it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live

A friend is still trying to get himself a job in another country.  I so envy the idea yet can find no way to go about it.  Personally, I have three countries I'd like to live and work in, at least for a while.  One of the countries is very close, yet cold, I spent a few weeks there 17-18 years ago and loved it.  AND it has everything I want, art culture, European sensibilities, gay marriage, health care, and a lot of it is seriously cool.  Oh let's not forget it's huge...and mostly empty. What's not to like?

The other is actually in Europe and I've never been there, but it does call to me.  I'm no ace at the language yet, but I intend to get better, and when I do...

It's neighbor, though much smaller has a seemingly impossible language yet appeals even more.  I'd so love to just pack it all in and go. Unfortunately I read this morning that their unemployment rate just topped 20 %.  I doubt they'll be embracing foreigners anytime soon. 

Perhaps it's the residuals of the funk I've been in all week.  But I love the idea.

This morning's rain is nixing the idea of riding the bike to work.  I was assured by our local weather persons that this wouldn't happen until AFTER I got home this afternoon.  Alas.

Still hoping for a new job this fall, love the current one it's just not full time and I need benefits, so there's that.

But tonight is martini's and dinner with friends. Tomorrow obligatory attendance at the students annual play festival, then right back to it on Sunday.

Well, nothing hateful to report on the Catholics for the second time this week.  Too bad too, I was spoiling for a fight.

And to a young friend in New Mexico who has just allowed himself to be cast  as Romeo in a production directed by his Dad.

Child!  Have I taught you nothing?

And so it goes:
