wish i had an answer...i have a friend who lives near junction, texas, and i'd like to stay with her some. as far as career, i'm just wanting to take a year off from a career. i taught students with special needs for the past six years and i'm exhausted; my personal life was a mess, too.
in the past 4 years i've been "getting rid of things that no longer serve me". i've been divorced a year, moved back to the woodlands, and have just been plugging along. i've got to take some time to refill. i have a bach. of music in piano pedagogy, so i can teach piano, but i don't know where yet. the aching in my soul is to play piano and sing, so i need time to focus on building a repertoire.
i lived in austin many years ago, but it was a traumatic time. last summer i revisited the places and events, and there was lots of healing. so many things are in the air right now...i'm having a hysterectomy on monday, i have to recover from that, all before my insurance runs out.
i have a house for sale in plano, too. i have to break the news to my ex who still lives there that i'll only be able to help with the mortgage for two more months. (when i left he was undergoing diagnostic testing for luekemia, so it went on the back burner)
i've been doing well taking things one day at a time, but sometimes i get nervous. and i don't want to ask for help! i'm trying to be more independent! this is the first time i've ever lived on my own. so i have to seek help, and that gets me down.
the adventures will be great if i can handle the stress!
you look really familiar. do you happen to attend horizon unitarian universalist church in carrollton?
i'll check them out on youtube. i got to see susan gibson at kerrville folk festival a coupla weeks ago. great show. i'll be posting more blogs on the performers i see and hear. so much music, so little time.
did you check out my blog? Adam and I took ear training/sight singing in college together, and he was my neighbor. he dropped out of school...he obviously didn't need it! tell me any favorite folk singer/songwriters i need to go see!
