Ahhhh. The satisfaction of waking up on a wet day, making a cup of coffee, and just sitting. I have to admit, it’s hard to avoid the computer these days. Facebook, email, blogs, netflix. They take my attention. So I’m writing this blog, and then I’m taking a long computer break. I am. For at least an hour.
Something I left out of the last blog was that I had a phone interview for a job in Austin, TX. It was on Thursday. It is very difficult to think about this, because I’m making myself somewhat crazy with the option. I would love to live in Austin, but I also am so happy to be back in Santa Cruz. The job: environmental specialist with Travis County, assisting in the management of the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve. It is a very good fit with my background and interests, and it is more of an administrative job than a biologist job. Which is a GOOD thing. But, still, it is a job in the field I am trying to leave.
It would mean move to TX. It would mean waiting on taking classes and while I can still write and do other creative pursuits and get more involved with Amala Foundation and other exciting things in Austin — it would really hitting a pause button on the current direction of my life. However – it would also mean a steady income. And that…that would be a VERY NICE THING right now.
biologist/steady job/new home/get to know my nascent community in austin/do more with Amala?
pursue the artist in me NOW/no steady income source/santa cruz and all that’s here for me now?
Well, it’s all just in my mind for now, as I won’t know about the job for a while. Probably not til next week.
Here in Santa Cruz is another thing – satsang and non-dual teachers like Adyashanti, Mokshananda, Jon Bernie. Inner Light Ministries.
All stuff I love and am so fed by. mmmmm…rain and coffee. my kind of morning. have a great day!
