Two weeks ago Andrew called home with the news that he would be leaving his job. He and I will both continue writing for Daily Guideposts, but after 16 years Andrew will cease to be the editor.
In the short run this means Andrew is doing editorial consulting. In the long run it may mean he starts a publishing project of his own, or that he gets a different job, or that I get a full-time job, or that we both do a ton of freelance work. There are many possibilities. We'll figure it out as we go, even though it's not clear exactly where we're going.
When I was younger, lack of certainty bothered me. Now I ignore it 95% of the time and am terrified of it the other 5%. Paying too much attention to how I feel -- especially when I'm afraid -- would prevent me from doing what I need to do, and paralysis is the last thing I need.
So, onward. And if you have specific ideas on projects either Andrew or I should be considering, let me know!
