My life is filling up with gainful employment. Yes, I have a part-time temporary, possibly permanent, full-time job at Boise State, my ala mater. It’s been 7 1/2 years since I graduated from Boise State and four years since I terminated my almost 17-year employment there to accept a new position at Idaho State University. Come June 27, I will have been unemployed and technically retired for two years. I surely thought that I would be further along with this book. Further along like done. D-O-N-E! Actually, except for some last-minute rewrites, I am done with the book. It’ s the book proposal that is creeping along like something very slow. I keep telling myself that even slow-moving things get there eventually. Oh Lord, give me strength, inspiration, patience, and a few really great open doors.
