The local venue for selling SJD jewelry and art (The Market at Banbury Place) has closed. Still processing that. Still thinking about the ideas of ventures failing vs running their course. Yessir, this change along with the whole issue of a "calling" or vocation have generated lots of food for thought this summer. Lots of food but little appetite. I think about where my gifts and talents would be best used - what would make the world a better place but also what would satisfy the very human need for a sense of accomplishment, for a sense of meaning. 'hi ho' as dear Uncle Kurt would say. hi ho.
