By day I am immersed in a world of technology. I troubleshoot computers, iPhones, and iPads, and software for a living. It is a mechanical/concrete life of device triage and repair and tracking down software and system anomalies.
By night (most nights anyway), I live in a world of poetry and nature and language and jazz.
It is a day divided: betwixt and between brain hemispheres and categories of time (the horizontal existence of chronos, and the vertical existence of kairos).
I'm a retired plumber. Finally got to the point in life when I don't have to live by the sweat of my labor. Now I'm remodeling my own bathroom [new tub, sink, toilet and tiles].
I assemble flat pack furniture. Mostly flat pack furniture from companies like john lewis, asda, furniure123, tesco, homebase and the ikea assembly service. It is not the best of jobs but fitting knock down furniture is something that does make me happy. I used to do flat packs on my own, but after a while I became a furniture assembler at the fantastic furniture assembly company It is a medium sized company, which does mainly Ikea delivery, assemblage, every here and there furnishing dismantling and etc. Pretty much, long story short, that's it.
So cool to do what you love. I always say I do what I do so I can do what I love. I love watching people make glass stuff so interesting to see it take shape! I don't mind my work it certainly does not define me though. I wonder if I could find a job where I can be paid to hang with my dog dance and listen to music read books and write O and walk on the beach. :)
I sell glass! I run an online website that displays my glass artwork and various other artists. I feel pretty fortunate to have a job in an artistic field. Especially making glass pipes and things for people to enjoy whatever they choose ;) What about yourself? And everyone else for that matter?
MJ - Did you ever meet David Lovering out on 'the circuit'?
There are penguins in Pittsburgh?!? Holy Mazzoli!
I knew they had some pirates running around that city, but jeeeez.....
Like most entertainers, I'm my favorite topic. But I shall spare you good people. I'm a magician. Guess that covers it.
Of the tea party and of the other kind. He promised an up or down vote on the CR (Continuing Resolution on the debt ceiling) to Harry Reid and has been since roped into shredding the Affordable Care Act along with the rest of the Tea Party.
Everybody has a heard at least some little thing about how bad it would be for the country to default on it's debt obligations. If this goes to November 1st then it is likely our debt would be downgraded, interest rates for borrowing would go up, and serious, ugly inflation would emerge. Not only that, it is sure the Chinese would move to become the world's reserve currency.
The psychology of playing chicken is now being analyzed. It seems that each party has to be willing to drive it's car over the cliff. Not only willing but actively aiming to the point where it becomes too late to turn away. It will only be parties other than Obama and the Tea Party that can save us from doing a Thelma & Louise.
That's really me, and everything is all OSHA and EPA regulated. OSHA actually comes in and fines the place once a year, and everyone stays fat and happy. They say that the carbon black is, and I quote, "No more harmful than the bleach under your kitchen sink". My reply was, "I'm not huffing bleach all day". 15 years under my belt come January.
Been to the Vulcan. Nice connection!
