Okay, maybe not exactly original. Readers of this blog may not have been alive when this song was recorded or popular, so maybe I can get away with it.
My last post was a poetic, meandering bit of self-reflection about how selfish it was for me to pursue a line of work that could negatively impact the people I love the most.
Well, sorry kids. I can’t do it. I’m addicted to this work.
Every day, there’s another death. There’s another reason to keep going. I realize I’m starting over, reinventing myself at the bottom of a low-paying field, yet all arguments to give up fall away in the face of the opportunity to make a real dent in this particular universe. So, I’m continuing. I took a pause, but that was about it. I grabbed those bootstraps and yanked harder.
Good news is coming. I promise. Stay tuned.
News flash: it’s not about the money.
