“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” (the Revelation 22:13)
Today I start a new position as town librarian/librarian clerk. It’s only a part-time endeavor but what better place for a writer than in a house of books? Granted, I will need to supplement somehow but, it’s a tad more secure than a temporary position. They have also promised an increase in both pay and hours after my first 3 months, sooner if I catch on to everything quickly enough. I am looking forward to it.
More, this new position is within walking distance of home, which reduces fuel expenses and the wear and tear on my car. It reduces my carbon footprint significantly. It also relieves what may be an irrational anxiety of mine of losing time at work owing to transportational challenges. While I have a reliable vehicle (knock on wood), I’ve been in fight-or-flight mode for so long, I don’t know how to calm down out of it yet. Here’s hoping this new gig will be a new way forward.
May God bless you & keep you!
