Happy Memorial day!
First off, some of you who knew me as The Hartless Companion (which Chris said sounded like a bad romance blog; unfortunately I agree...) and then bare feet ~ free spirit, please understand that I am never set on labels and I think I have FINALLY found a blog title that I feel more accurately represents my intentions...so, sorry for the indecision...the Witty Hippie is here to stay, my friends!
I wore a pensive smile this afternoon as I wrapped up my employment at the Rte. 58 Delicatessen, where I worked as a server for almost 2 years, to explore my creativity and pursue some serious gardening and writing that I have been kindling for the past year or so. While I knew it was my time to move on, it was surely a bittersweet week, saying goodbye to all the amazing beings and network of minds that I have been around steadily since I was hired in the fall of 2008.
Amidst all the bustle and the craze and the egos and the feelings and the burns and the burn outs and the bad math and the bad manners and the hulabaloo of a full time job, sometimes bonds are made that exist outside of the workplace as the thoughtful individuals we are.
Not only will I see my friends frequently (like at the beach tomorrow : ) but the internet (obviously) provides the perfect medium to support each other as we wander our own paths.
I look forward to the next time I walk back into the Deli and how the absence will feel, after not having been away for more than a week for the last 21 months!
And of course a "Thanksh Bosss" to Mr. Goldberg for keeping me around this long and allowing me to meet said persons and have such fun and frivolity!
I did my best and want to express my sheer gratitude to those of you who appreciated my work, enhanced my experience, and also became my friends. For this, I am blessed _/ \_
Of course this is sappy...I'm a sentimentalist...why do you think I want to be a writer?
Sigh. I positively reminisce and know it was the perfect way to go : )
I have been extremely fortunate in the jobs I have acquired and managed to retain (knocking on end table, here) and will be babysitting, performing odd jobs, and hopefully writing some freelance articles to float through this capital-consumerist society (with feelings of which I won't divulge on now!.....you're welcome)
For now my goal is to be as mindful as possible, focusing on my yoga practice and helping my garden to flourish so we can eat raw, organic greens all summer long and give back to this little splotch of earth. By consuming little, creatively channeling ideas and making some sweet connections, I think this semi-sabbatical will suit me just fine!
~This life's not a resumè, it's a ride~
(i'm excited for where to go next...teehee! ; )
thank you thank you, to all who serve. please be safe and have a happy holiday!
