To the Future

I have to say it somewhere and it's too soon to go to Facebook, so here I am.

My program has not been funded for another year. I'm out of a job in a month. Not sure what's next.

I just got back from a long weekend at the beach. I had a post in my head about the bravery of my daughter in the waves and the wind. Then I spent most of last night in the ER with her after Little Miss Brave fell backwards on to her head on a hardwood floor and then threw up a few times for good measure. She's fine--spent most of the evening charming everyone in the ER. 

But it looks like it's time for me to be brave. And smart. And a sober calculator of a risk-benefit ratio that resides in a future completely unknown. All the things I want her to be.

Here's to the future. The scary, scary future that just might be more beautiful than anything we've ever seen before.


  1. Oh, that sucks. You must be so frustrated. Your girls are the real losers, here, because where will they be with out you? It's a loss for the whole community. You, I'm not so worried about. You're as resilient as it gets.

  2. Good luck. Sounds like you're entering some uncharted territory.

  3. From what I know of what you do it's tragic that it was defunded. I'm so sad to hear it. But I raise my glass (um, coffee cup?) to the future unknown. Happy trails.

  4. I'm so sorry to hear that.
