Bite sized bio: "Be water, my friend."

I got laid off on Friday from the community newspaper I've worked at for four years and for three years before that during another stint. Financial reasons, I'm told.

It's scary and stressful, changing things up with what feels like no safety net—although I will be filing for unemployment.

I've got options, everyone tells me. I've got options, I tell myself. But on this my second day with no work, I'm just taking it one minute at a time.

I was thinking this morning. Being suddenly unemployed, I feel like water that was in a glass and now the glass has broken. But according to the great sage Bruce Lee, that might not be a bad thing.
