All Things Must Pass

I lost my job today. I have another one, but I am still quite upset. I liked that job and it blows that I won't be able to take advantage of the employee discount anymore. I'm a real addict now, and my dealer has cut me off. Well, seriously, I'm not happy about how it went down. They wanted me to be more aggressive and I'm just too laid back. I'd been uncomfortable about this for a couple of weeks and contemplating requesting a transfer to a different location, but that's no longer possible. Poo.

On the other hand, I can now wear color whenever I want. No more black and white uniform. No more crazy homeless people yelling at me because they want a free piece of soap. No more hanging out with my friends there either, since I've decided never to return to that location again. It would be too weird and I will feel some resentment about this for a long, long time.

Sometimes, we need a crack in our hard shells to let the light into our souls. Now, I don't feel like I have to stay in town to keep my job there. Maybe I'll gig around again, put more pins in my map. It's hard to say, so I am keeping my options open.
