You did indeed plant the seed, Nita. I myself never would have thought of such a thing. You and others have opened whole new vista's for me. THANKS and Hugs. I am, as I write beginning to pack for TPR. Even that's fun! smiles, lynne

I was thinking of trying to work for NFS (forest service) somewhere outside California, after few years in tech field...or state park services up in North states, where the parks aren't broke...but wonder if this is a realistic goal, considering sequester and fed/state budgets looking only worse in the future, these jobs probably will be hard to land.

I have a hard time with dream and job in the same sentence.

But for now, I'm pretty close. Moving all day cleaning has gotten me much fitter than I was, and dropped 15 pounds. Private luxury 2nd homes filled with beautiful and interesting artwork and artifacts. A sensual feast of color and texture everyday. I could happily sleep on the silk carpets.

Julia, maybe occupation would be a better word than job.

But the intent is that you do what you need to do in life to take care of yourself(and family if applicable)and enjoy what you do to make that happen......plus perhaps create at the same time. That would be a bonus.

and that's my definition of a job. :D

Hey Lynnie, know what I like about your posts? I can't just sit here and bang out a quick reply. Your questions always cause one to be just a little bit introspective, this one especially. I like that about you. And it certainly speaks to who I know you to be...

But dream job, eh? Hmmmmm.... I suppose some would say being a teacher would be a dream job, summers off and all. I won't deny that I do like it. But at this stage in my life, I don't know if I can put the words "dream" and "job" together without the outcome being a bit too realistic, and not enough dreamy.

For now, let's just leave it at this

I would love to get paid for listening and asking people questions in their homes..
I'm very curious about people, how they live and what makes them tick.

I would never want to be on T.V.....but as far as an easy living........

A chick named Gaia beat me to it.

Just as well, I'd have had too much fun with quakes and floods.

OK, I dream of having a job as the guy who paints swim suits on super models. Where do I sign up?

Well back in 2008 I was working at my dream job. A few short years later, it was more of a nightmare.

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.


Most excellent, Mr. Bee!
NOW, get that website up ... your art should be more widely seen.

~Peace, Leggs

EDIT: If you need website development advice, hit me up ... it's what I do.

Goddammitt!

My dream job would be playing the government-sanctioned Grammar Nazi so I could catch all who use this NOUN, Transition, as a VERB!

The word you seek and overlook is To Transit, i.e., I am transitting, I transitted, I have transitted into a new career.

Because it's a common enough failing in corporate-speak America (and Canada, you are copy-cats, flat out, so this goes for you, too, eh?), I would choose to forgive you. We copy our bosses: even when we KNOW his grammar's 'teribble' and his spell-check is 'broke,' he's still the boss.

I wish I could be the boss. And planet Earth.

Touche my comma were appreciated, and, they have achieved full value!

I will retreat, now, to my humble job of transrationing of Engrish.

The best job in the world sucks by virtue of the fact that you have to do it.

The worst jobs all suck.
The best job still sucks.

If you're in school, a fool.

Pretty good stuff, Marlow down below. A Life, in four parts; but do you dream in four parts? No. It just happens. That's the way I like my lives.
