Transitions


Please take a moment to send good happy healing thoughts to my past place of employment. Due to a State budget cut and my state giving our work to a different states company--- 1/3 of the company had to part ways 6/30/06. This is a picture of the support staff for SM dept of my company.










We had become a disfunctional little family. Yes, we weren't perfect but we tried. I miss you all.
That last day was horrible. Knowing for so long was a double edged sword. Yes, it gave me a chance to find a new job, but I still had to go to work knowing it was over. As a good little worker bee--- I just picked up the shattered pieces and did what I could.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've started up as a teacher assistant for a local elementary school. So far so good. I think this could be alittle career change, but we'll wait to see. I go between the 3 third grade teachers. Very supportive school staff, teachers and principle. AND it still gives me time to do music.

All you have to do it just...


Jump over the moon.
I love this picture.
Not much to say.
Just another day in paradise.
the leaves are budding
the birdes cheaping away

4/13/06

i fought the law, and....

well, we'll find out april 13th in raleigh,nc.

yes, i got a ticket.
i went the wrong way down a one way street.
very scary
horns honking
lights flashing
the boys in blue
flashlights in my face
me freaking out
i came to an intersection where i had a stop sign.
i looked ahead
they had a stop sign
i looked right
no one
i looked left and saw a "stop sign"
---with vehicals way down the street
so my right of way, right?
i got there first?.!
so my friend kevin said turn into the lot
so it looked like turning left would be easiest
<<>
because the left part of this intersection was a one way
sh*t!

i messed up.
yes, i turned down the wrong way
the one way is clearily marked if you know the area---sort of
but i had never been there
it was dark
heavy traffic
i was conviced this was a 4-way stop
so i turned left into the wide right lane to turn into the parking lot on the corner

the cop was doing a DUI check because this was a bar district at 11pm
no i had just finished a concert so no drinking was involved
just misperception

funny thing the next day i went back to see what i did and see what the intersection was like in the broad daylight
well i almost got hit by a car
must be a very clear intersection
hmmm but i'm just a girl driver, right.

so now since i do not "know anybody" i have the choice of going all the way back to raleigh
to go to court
or hiring a lawyer

to me hiring a lawyer means your guilty but can afford to pay your way out.
-----------you know this doesn't make a do right girl feel good

oy, what's a girl to do in this crazy crazy world???
insurence sucks, what a racket
almost as bad as health insurence...how can they sleep at night
it costs a bundle to have but if you use it you get charged more as a company...

Hugs
and peace out

dream machine


Dear Ford,

I am a Michigander who came from a Ford family who proudly drove an American car, but I'm sorry to say that you did not treat me well and my car was falling apart---it was not realible ---didn't really get good gas milage---the dealership was shady...with all that in mind I test drove a Honda. What a great car. Hello sexy sexy car. Hmmm CD player in the car finally. I felt it would be vindictive to send a post card with me in front of my sexy sexy Honda to Ford saying goodbye...So I Blogged it instead.

Goodbye Ford...
Hello Honda.

I have to say I love the picture he chose for the website but it does look like he's about to harpoon someone say maybe a viola player. HA HA HA does it ever get old to tease viola players. Their too cute.

The new artistic director Daniel Meyer is a great thing for the Asheville Symphony. He's the kind of conductor that gives you the room to have creative freedom, but also he let's you know in a positive way what he wants. Such a treat to work with him!
