Music of my time

A little fun poem after the passing of David Bowie and Glenn Frey. Both of these men had a great impact on my middle and high school days. Thank goodness, their talent will live on forever, as even the greatest of legends never will.

New song lyrics for the New Year

Well the holidays are over and I now have to face the real world and find a job. I got laid off after almost 18 years with same company. It's happened before, but last time I was able to find another job within the company. This time my lay off happened right before Christmas, so there were very few jobs available. I took the holidays off and didn't worry about finding a new job. Now I have a few decisions to make. My skills are very specific, however, I haven't worked in that field for 2 years (since the first lay off), so my chances just got smaller. I don't know if I even want to continue in IT, unless it's as a developer, as I did for ten years.

I'm toying with photography, but the question is can I afford to start at the bottom of the ladder. I guess I'll just have to wait and see how things play out. I have a strategy in my mind. Let's hope it's a good one. In the meantime, I wrote a little something to keep my spirits high. I hope it helps you too, just in case you might need a lift today.

Happy New Year to all. May 2016 be filled with all the people and things you love!
