My Resume

Went to bed at 3:30AM and got up at 7:15AM when Mom called me. I evidently did not set the clock last night. Alex boarded the bus and I promptly returned to the house. I logged onto the computer and started working with BlogShares.


I received a notice that I am to fill out for eligibility to serve in the United States District Court Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division. I hope I do not have to do this anytime soon. I am not enamored of sitting in a courtroom for hours.


I went on a deep search and found my resume again, thought I would post it here. Maybe someone knows somewhere I might find employment… not fast food, but somewhere where stress is not too high.

I think that goes back far enough there are more public employment positions as I go further back, but this gives a good overview of what I have done in the last fifteen years. Unfortunately my illness has had a lot of bearing on my work history. There were periods during these years when I was barely functional at all.


After all that I need a typing break so here are a few poems:


Friend of Great Places


Writing is the friend

I share my deepest secrets

With on lonely days..

I can not help but

Open up my heart and mind

To let words flow free.

Writing is the place

I go when I need to know

Myself much better.

The lessons I learn

Teach me to become closer

To the self I hide.

Writing is the great

Escape from every day that

Full engages me.

Then it surely draws

Me back to my reality

So revealing me.

Drink in quiet

solitary ingenuity

individual light rhythm

bound between cool skin

beneath summer storm.

God’s Ways


His ways lead me

Beyond myself

Toward His higher

Purpose for the life

With which He gifted me.


I find Him in

The quiet when

I reach beyond

The troubles of

My everyday.


He holds me

In the safety

Of His capable

And loving hands;

In Him I can stand.
