As the previous post indicated- it means I’m going back to my job as an engineer, but this time around it feels different, and I feel excited about it- hope that lasts. But a lot will have to change- my perspective for one, has already changed. And I’ll let change keep happening until I feel all snug and happy (happiness is relative in an IT company) in a certain role. And I’ll use my earnings for my art and other stuff*. And one day in the future I’ll quit my job and have a little business of my own? Maybe:) Yea so I’m quick to build castles in the air..I’m yet to figure out a lot of things..and it’s all alright. See what Henry David Thoreau says >
“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.”
* There’s something I found over at Hugh Macleod’s blog that resonates with my line of thought- The Sex & Cash theory. Here’s a snippet:
“The creative person basically has two kinds of jobs: One is the sexy, creative kind. Second is the kind that pays the bills.
And I’ve grown to treasure the duality. Every time I’ve tried to permanently wear just one hat, the personal hat or the business hat, I get bored silly within a week. The work seems to need the constant dialogue between the inner and outer.
Finding that sweet spot where that never-ending dialogue can exist happily forever, is one of THE great tasks (and gifts) our brief life gives us.”
