My Imminent Return

Man, I wish I was here right now!

After two months of a self-imposed, and much needed, break from blogging, I may soon be back. Between getting schoolwork done and finishing my bout with The Captain's Log, I've had little time for
updates. I have kept up with my lj, but only because I don't really care what is in that. I'd like to think that this blog is much more professional and so the words mean more and so need to be more thought out. In the meantime, I have become addicted to food blogs and blogs in general really. It's easy to not do your homework when you could be reading about good food that you don't have money to make or cutesy dogs. Anyway, I have no time left to update a blog myself, though that will shortly change I hope :-). I still have a paper to turn in and a paper to finish writing, but when all that is done I will be completely finished with my undergraduate career. I just have to take a breather and focus to get there.

I have a job now. It's a full-time copy-editing position with a starting salary somewhere around $24,000. Unfortunately that is par for a journalism job in Newport News. At least entry level. Which is why I am not really staying here for long. Hopefully the future I am working towards will include a stint in Oregon. Because it is one of the most beautiful states I have ever visited, even in the city it is wonderful!

And to end with a quote:

"Thus shall you think of all this fleeting world:
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream..."
~ The Diamond Sutra, Buddha

  1. Hi- The Title of your Blog is completely intriguing, and resonates inwardly on many different levels. Your quote from the Diamond Sutra is one of my favorites. Your nature photography is excellent and has a Zen-like quality, proceeding from an inner space that the linear intellect can never touch. I came across your Blog while I was following a link-- Many thanks for creating such a unigue 'space' on the Web!
