My work world has become highly unstable in the last few weeks, and people are reacting in the understandable and unpleasant ways people do – jockeying for position, talking behind people’s backs, pointing the finger, etc. This is not a way of operating that works for me. So rather than getting caught up in it, I’ve been doing other things that make me feel happy and fulfilled, and looking for the lesson. I’ve decided that it’s time to return to some unfinished business, and figure out what I want to do next. It’s actually kind of a nice place to be – I’ve got no immediate pressure, financially or personally, and I can let the path unfold before me. And in the meantime, I’m working in my garden, plotting for a new queer project with one of my favorite co-conspirators, and taking a film class. Because nothing is worse than being bored in the summer.
