From the depths

with 10 comments


On many levels, I’ve tucked myself away for the past few weeks.

From the innards of Seattle’s (and my own) underbelly, hello.

I started my new job last week and it fills so much more than my belly with warm and fuzzies. I’m so grateful to be there.

My title: Color Correction Specialist for the Seattle Art Museum.

My qualifications: Um…

My boss: One of the most gracious, willing to teach women I’ve ever met. Ever. I feel like we have an apprenticeship going and I just love to be around her. She’s one of those women who makes you want to curl into your favorite flannel pj’s, hot beverage in hand, to sit and listen to for hours. Be jealous. You’d love her too.

I have felt swooped into a beautiful work environment quickly and in perfect timing. I needed this. Have needed and wanted a change of pace. A slowing down. A creative job that stirs me.

Lots of wheels are a’ cranking about my emotional/personal health. I’m going to keep those wheels to myself for now.

Thank you to the many of you who have reached out recently. I feel swooped up and loved by you as well.

Goodbye for now. I love you. Back to the innards…

  1. as you can tell from the quick response, I’ve been checking in on you a lot recently – and it’s good to see something like this. I’m glad to hear that the job is going well, and I would still love to hear from you whenever you get the chance.

  2. I don’t know what issues you’re facing, but I submit that it is necessary for you to know that I have found encouragement through the words and emotions you share with us. There is a sense of warmth and genuineness that you convey, your fiance as well, and I wish I could come across such beautiful people like you in my own life.

    Perhaps they are there and I’m not looking through the correct lens. Perhaps I’m being a bit too selfish.

    Either way, thank you so much for the lovely little pieces of art you share with us in each post. They mean more to the world than you could ever know.

  4. My dear “color correction specialist” this is for you and yes Chicago wrote it.

    As time goes on I realize
    Just what you mean to me
    And now, now that you’re near(same country)
    Promise your love
    That I’ve waited to share
    And dreams of our moments together
    Color my world with hope of loving you

  7. i have been meaning to tell you for way too long that we have mutual friends in andi and arpi. i don’t know them super well but i saw them at a wedding back in the fall and it was affirmed that you are really as cool in real life as you seem through your blog;)

    congrats on the job. nothing soothes my soul like a job that ‘fits’ like you described it.

  8. congrats on the job. that’s fabulous.

    Jan seems like a good time in Seattle to hole up and care for yourself. Hopefully warm blankets and hot drinks and good books abound for you when you aren’t specializing and apprenticing.

  9. “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all that He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” _Philippians 4:6-7

    He took up our infirmities, He carried our sorrows, He was pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities, because of His wounds we are healed, because of His grace you are free.
