been waiting for a settled time to finally tell you...
the dream job. the job in your field with the coolest co-workers in a positive atmosphere that allowed and encouraged being VISIONARY. the job that had you marvel, how did i get so lucky to land this rare & important job?
but i did get that lucky and i did quit. quietly announced 9 days ago, effective TODAY.
i'm super proud. before me this position didn't exist and the public arts program is now a crucial part of the downtown Provo revitalization. someone with fresh blood can take over. they can pour their heart and soul into it and make the art scene in Provo continuously better!
i'm super relieved. there are excellent things on the horizon. i'm inspired by the future.
and the truth is i'm not so scared. (what's way more frightening is not listening to your Fierce Guiding Self and sticking with a job you know you need to leave behind.)
the blur galloping off into the unknown
p.s. not to water down the fact that i quit...and not to diminish the awesome fact that i'm jobless...and definitely not to comfort those poor unimaginative practical souls who would ask "how are you going to pay your bills?"...but i'll still be consulting on a project by project basis.
Many thanks to Char, the interim director, and all of the active members of the Downtown Alliance committees and board of directors. Much love and appreciation to Susan Bradford for believing in art (and me!) and to Teresa. You guys rock and withdrawals from every day interaction with you are rough!
