we are always stuck
between here and where
we might be.

so make merry
of your own transitional disaster.

there is no dream,
there is only tolerated disappointment.

Looking to retirement and the dream jobs that come with it:

Photography and fine woodworking.

Dream job: senior partner/owner in a small law firm doing general civil law in a small, beautiful town in the central Sierra foothills (somewhere like, say, Sonora), working 25 to 30 hours per week and taking a week off every month...

Oh wait, that's not a dream...

Thanks for the link to the old thread Khanom! I guess I didn't post to that one.

Scanning it quickly, some dear old ST friends posted there who have since passed on.

I want to make sick rock shoes.

There's no money in it, but I can't stop myself.

And dirtineye had the funniest reply!

I have had my dream job, full time dad going on nine years now (so it's no fluke!). It's not always a dream and there are times when things transform into nightmares! :-) But somehow we all recovery by healthy means. It suits me well and the result and benefits are immeasurable. That wins out in the end all the time. I've also long worked with an old friend part time (very part time) helping him support his software. That's a dream too, given the culture our company (and it's a very real company) is directly opposed to the culture of much of Silicon Valley from whence we came many moons ago. Can you say family friendly? Hahaha!

By the way, JB and I share the same sentiment about compensation!

Getting ready to take my three youngest for a late season JT camping trip. They are all super psyched to go, especially the youngest for whom this is her first camping trip ever. She is chomping at the bit! It's a boatload of work to get out the door, but once we are on the road, it's always worth it!

Cheers,
Eric

Can't wait to be a granny one day. That will be the dream job.

I'm with you there Sully...I look at little toddlers and I just want to play, play, play...I'm not in a hurry for my son to reproduce, but given my late start I'll be an old old granny. You'll be able to teach your grand kids to climb! Mine'll probably be pushing me!

Dream job? I'd build things that are intricate and require serious planning on Sketchup to implement. In other words, I'd keep doing what I do, at a higher level.

Right now I'd settle for any job with a paycheck that allowed me to pay my debts, share, restore my rocking chair funds and didn't necessitate medication.

The past ten months have seen me transistioning into a career in photography also.
I have met the woman of my dreams, and we will pursue our dream jobs together.

That's awesome to hear 10b4me! Congrats and all the best to you!

I just got home from work not expecting too much from this Thread. What I just read was fantastic! Even brought tears to moi' eyes. :D

After I kick and watch the sunset I will read all your thoughts again.

Hi, starting to get warm days here and those sweet Cali Evenings. Enjo...

Took some effort and I was a bit worried, but I've just returned to my dream job, International School teacher.

Live and travel overseas while someone else pays for the bills. Great work schedule, descent salary, and no taxes.

"Lynne, why Lodge waitress? why not TPR waitress, then you could climb/hang with HossJulia and be in the high country!"
from mimi in the original dream job thread.
This seems to be the first mention of Lynne and TPR.
All I did was put in a good word :D

Oh No Julia,

You called me on my cell when I was on the way back from the Outdoor Retailers Event and said,"If you show up today the job will pro be yours."

I took a shower in Lee Vining, walked into TPR and for an unaccountable reason Joe was actually at the front desk. I told him my name and he said you're hired. Hate those LONG interviews....:DDD
