After a lengthy and extremely time consuming engagement with another
career “opportunity”, I am again unencumbered by a time clock or
paycheck. During my absence from this fine community, I believe the
only jewelry work I did was one chain repair, as a favor. While I
explore my options, I am looking forward to getting back into the
The first thing I need to do is a thorough straightening up and
cleaning so I can start with a fresh slate. The literal spider webs
need to be wiped from my bench, and the figurative cob webs need to be
wiped from my brain. Every tool is laying out right where I left it,
every stone rests as it did when I locked the door last. Nothing much
has changed except the pages on the calendar and the crusty build-up
on my pickle pot.
I want to thank Hanuman for graciously reuniting me with my old
friends. I kind of feel like the prodigal son, returning after having
turned my back on a family that had been such an important part of my
life for many years. I’m glad to be back “home” again!
All the best,
----Welcome back Dave! Orchid missed you!
