Sacked by the "downturn", an unemployed architect touring the country in a bus...



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 think its the Flu

Not feeling much better today.  Most of the nausea is gone, but my body and joints ache, I'm very tired and woozy, and I have some mucus in my breathing, some sore throat, and mild chills.  I think it's the Flu.  Crap.  I had a Flu shot.  I'm embarrassed with my hosts, having been here since Friday, I have some consulting to do which is time sensitive and for which I must clear my head, and I'm supposed to be in Taos in a couple of days.

I'm not going hiking at Bandelier today, that's for sure...
