We interrupt this economic downturn to point out a few exquisite pieces of terrific news:
1. Many of my writing colleagues have just, or are in the midst of, landing terrific book deals
2. My daughter has just been accepted to a master's program she has worked very hard to be in
3. The gallery where I work, after experiencing recent hardship, is facing brighter days
4. So many of my entrepreneurial colleagues and artist friends are venturing forth with exciting work and new business
In short, for folks who continue to work hard and think outside the box, the future is bright.
