Part of the reason is after writing my Carson research project AND my senior thesis, I was burnt out! It stifled any creativity whatsoever. I just couldn't do it any more...so I read...a ton...and I enjoyed the company of my friends (whom I missed terribly) and I played with my children. However, none of these activities pays the bills...so I found a job...
What do I do now??? I write! Yep, that's what I said. I'm working with several non-profit organizations and a documentary film maker on funding sources including grant writing. And I love it :) Who'd a thunk it?
In addition, for those who don't know, we have recently moved to Montana. It has always been a dream of mine to live here...ever since I heard a song as a kid about Montana.
Yes, this is the view from my back deck...at sunset. It's amazing here...I have to wonder now what took me so long :)
