After a week in the cat hospital, Shoes Lebowski is finally home. The whole ordeal ended up costing nearly $2,000. But, it’s ok because…I have a new job! After a year of freelancing, I was offered a wonderful position (with salary and benefits!) at an amazing company. I even get my own office — on the 24th floor of a downtown LA high-rise…

So here’s hoping this is the start of a new chapter in my life — and an entirely new career…For the next few days — before I start my job on Monday — I’m enjoying hanging out with Shoes
and relaxing…

Reading Annie Proulx’s Bird Cloud is doubly sweet.
