I used to live in New York City. I designed homes for the tycoons of Wall Street; Park Avenue, Scarsdale, Greenwich. It was great fun. And, after years of saving up for a down payment, I was just about to buy my own little place in Fleetwood, half an hour north of the city, when the economy fell apart. Architects are like canaries in a coal mine when the economy slows, and true to form, there were massive layoffs in firms all over the country. Devastation of the profession. So, I decided to try to find something else to do for a while. I bought a 23' school bus and I'm on the road to see if I can figure out what that might be.

I've posted a picture in the right hand column, titled "Friends at Katrina Relief." Click on it and see a Flicker slide show of some of the wonderful volunteers here.
It's amazing how a nap can refurbish will. I think I do my best thinking when I am asleep. I know two things: I can get what I need done for a lot less, and two, things would be a lot better if i had a job. Time to pursue both.
